Bellator 300 Results & Highlights: Usman Nurmagomedov Outworks Brent Primus

 Bellator celebrated its historic 300th event on October 7 at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California, with two championship fights. Bellator Lightweight Champion Usman Nurmagomedov defended his title against Brent Primus in the main event. The matchup also determined who moves on to the Bellator Lightweight Grand Prix finals.

Nurmagomedov was able to defend his title successfully for the second time and extend his undefeated streak to 18 wins. The champion controlled Primus for five rounds to get the unanimous decision win. He faces the winner of Alexander Shabliy vs. Patricky Pitbull, who will fight at Bellator 301 on November 17. It’s unclear when the finals will occur next year.

Elsewhere, Bellator Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg faced Cat Zingano in the co-main event. Cyborg dominated her opponent and ended the fight in four minutes by knockout. This marked her fifth successful title defense. 

The card was also supposed to see Bellator Women’s Flyweight Champion Liz Carmouche defending her title against former titleholder Ilima-Lei Macfarlane. However, the challenger was over the weight limit, meaning she couldn’t win the belt even with a win over the champion.

Ultimately, it didn’t matter as Carmouche was able to defeat Macfarlane by TKO in the fifth round due to a leg kick.
