Lawal had a strong first round, but the former UFC light heavyweight champion made things interesting in the second, finding a home for his left hand. In the third, Lawal’s striking and gas tank proved beneficial, as he took home the final stanza and the fight. The former Strikeforce champion cashed as a -265 favorite while Rampage couldn’t get it done as the +245 underdog. In the co-main event, Emmanuel Sanchez earned unanimous-decision victory (30-27 x 3) over former bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao. The three-round fight was an uninspiring matchup from both parties, but Sanchez did enough with his striking to get the job done. The Roufusport product got in the win column as a -295 favorite while Galvao’s move up to featherweight was unsuccessful as a+265 underdog. Sergei Kharitonov finally earned his first win in Bellator as he made short work of Chase Gormley. Kharitonov landed a right followed by a big right uppercut for the knockout win in the first round. The Russian took care of business as the -270 favorite while Gormley suffered another loss as the +248 underdog. The biggest betting favorite on the card — Noad Lahat — lived up to his billing as he earned a second-round victory over Lloyd Carter. After a solid first round, the UFC veteran Lahat landed an elbow to the temple of his opponent and then sunk in a rear-naked choke for the finish. Lahat shined as a massive -1000 favorite, and Carter endured another setback as a +800 underdog. Opening up the main card, Steve Kozola needed just 28 seconds to knock out opponent Jake Roberts. The 27-year-old got it done as the -165 favorite while Roberts came up short as the +155 underdog. Underdogs That Won None
