Bellator 259 results: Vanderford Brutal clash But win over Edwards

Bellator 259 results: Austin Vanderford suffers bloody body in decision win vs. Fabian Edwards.

Austin Vanderford picked up a big win and likely a nasty scar Friday at Bellator 259. 

The American Top Team product won a unanimous decision over Fabian Edwards at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Vanderford (11-0 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) defeated Edwards (9-2 MMA, 5-2 BMMA) with 30-27 scores from all three judges’ scorecards. 

The #Bellator259 bout ended a bloody mess despite it being a relatively clean affair with very little damage throughout the majority of the fight.

 In the main event, women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg (23-2 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) puts her title on the line against challenger Leslie Smith (12-8-1 MMA, 2-2 BMMA).

 Vanderford, who remains unbeaten in his professional MMA career. The 185-pound fighter entered No. 3 in the Bellator rankings and could be in line for a title shot next.

 Edwards is now on a two-fight skid, having lost to Costello van Steenis in a split decision. Prior to the pair of defeats, the 28-year-old was unbeaten with nine consecutive wins.
