Bellator 299 Results & Highlights: Eblen Retains 185-Pound Title, Finishes Edwards With Strikes In The Third

Main Event Highlights And Full Card Results

Live from the 3Arena tonight in Dublin, Ireland, Johnny Eblen (14-0) dispatched Fabian Edwards (12-3) prior to the championship rounds in their middleweight title bout at Bellator 299.

The headlining contest for the 185-pound belt concluded a monumental evening that featured a total of 20 fights. This is the 11th time Bellator has travelled to Ireland since the organization’s inception, and with each time, the hot bed of talented fighters and roaring fans has only increased.

Contrary to the way the main event ended, Edwards proved to be a very worthy opponent for Bellator’s middleweight champion. On multiple occasions, the challenger was able to be quicker to the punch than his opponent, making Eblen question if standing with the precision striker was too risky a move.

In the second round, Edwards landed a perfectly timed elbow during a stand-up exchange, which opened a massive cut above Eblen’s right eye. Out of caution, the ringside physician took a look at the laceration, but untimely decided that the fight could continue.

Eblen stepped out of his corner to start the third round with blood dripping down his face and seemingly one thing on his mind, ending the fight with a knock-out. It would not take long for Eblen to find the right moment to capitalize on, as he found himself one step ahead after absorbing a kick to the body from Edwards.

Immediately after the kick connected, Eblen stepped forward with a massive right hook that connected clean on the chin of Edwards. The challenger dropped to the ground and went into survival mode for a short period of time, but was unable to withstand the elbow strikes from Eblen, and the referee was forced to intervene.

Through this exciting main event showing, Eblen retained his middleweight title and added a 14th win to his undefeated professional record.
