Vitaly Minakov Still Holds The Heavy Weight Title After Bellator 115

The Bellator heavyweight title was up for grabs last night in Reno, Nevada, as Vitaly Minakov faced off against Cheick Kongo in the main event of Bellator 115.

Things started out rough Minakov , as referee Herb Dean deducted a point early in round one for two separate knees below the belt. Minakov managed to rebound though, and wound up taking each of the first three rounds with a collection of trips and a smothering top game.
