With Shayna back from vacation to rejoin Isaac Duncan, Bruce Hoyer moved back over to the producer’s seat in the sweltering hot Siouz Falls, S.D. studio.
Ben beat Ryan Thomas in the first round and, in an odd quirk, also the semifinals of Bellator’s second season to advance to the finals. A decided underdog in the finals, he used his world-class wrestling to put Dan Hornbuckle on his back and keep him there, cruising to a unanimous decision victory and earning a shot at welterweight champion Lyman Good. Askren, in his post-fight cage interview, told Good that it was his belt and to shine it every week.
