Hidalgo, Texas – Queiroz uses his length to lock in a submission from an unorthodox position, and finishes things with a highlight reel submission.
Bellator 143 took place on September 25, 2015 at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.
Ewerton Teixeira vs. Vinicius Queiroz took place on the main card which aired on Spike TV.
It only took a minute and a half to get things to the ground for Vinicius. Teixeira reversed and used the top position to get things back to the feet. Both guys exchange blows in the stand up, but neither fighter landed clean. I’ll give it to Vinicius, but it’s still anybody’s fight.
10-9 Vinicius Queiroz
Slow second round, but one that was dominated by Vinicius. A mid-round takedown was enough to win the judges over, but Vinicius managed to move into a head and arm choke from half guard. On the opposite side, no less. Apparently, it was enough to earn the tap from Teixeira, finishing the fight via submission in the second.
