Roy Nelson defeated Javy Ayala via unanimous decision (30-26, 29-28, 29-28)
"The goal was just to go out there, get the win, and work my game a little bit. It felt good to throw some bombs for these fans in San Jose. I had to give Bellator some footage to use, especially since the UFC doesn't license anything out," Roy Nelson said. "It was a tough fight and Javy's a talented fighter. Really, any heavyweight has power and if you connect the other person is definitely going to get knocked out and that is exactly what these fans come to see."
"Overall I was pretty happy with my performance. I thought I was doing a good job with my stand up against him, but he's really tough," Javy Ayala said. "I just wasn't able to stop the takedowns and his top control was at the elite level. But again I'm pretty pleased with my performance and I'm already looking forward to getting back into that cage for Bellator.

Aaron Pico defeated Justin Linn via knockout at 3:45 of round one
Aaron Pico Quote: "First of all, hats off to Justin [Linn]. He's a great competitor and I knew it was going to be a tough fight. It feels good fighting at 145-pounds. This is my natural weight and it felt great. I'm going to have to watch the replay of this fight because I'm not even sure how I hit him, it was just very instinctual. I always knew that I had very powerful hands and I'm not being cocky, I'm just confident because I spar with some of the best boxers in the world over at Team Bodyshop in Long Beach. The key to this fight was just relaxing because I knew that as long as I was relaxed in there, my skillset was going to show."
