Bellator 164 Results: Lima Stops Koreshkov, Reclaims Welterweight Title

On Thursday, Nov. 10, Bellator MMA hosted its 164th event from the Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv, Israel.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s welterweight champion, Andrey Koreshkov, rematched the man he defeated to capture the belt, Douglas Lima. The pair met at Bellator 140 last July and the Russian Koreshkov earned a unanimous decision win to take the title from the Brazilian. Since then, Koreshkov defended the belt against former UFC titleholder Benson Henderson. Lima, meanwhile, bounced back in July with a decision win over British knockout artist Paul Daley at Bellator 158.

The action kicked off on Thursday at 11 a.m. ET. The night’s main card will air on Spike TV via tape-delay on Friday, Nov. 11 beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
