Bellator 144: Halsey vs. Carvalho will take place October 23, 2015 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Giovanella locked up a tight triangle choke in the first and never relented, forcing Polcare to tap only moments into the bout. The event airs live in prime time on Spike TV following the preliminary card on MMA Mad. Billy Giovanella vs. Brandon Polcare took place on the preliminary portion of the card
The fight hits the mat immediately with Polcare on top. Giovanella hooks up a triangle choke very quickly, however, and is looking for the tap. Polcare tried to get out by slamming Giovanella, but only makes it tigher. He survies for a little while longer, but is eventually forced to tap. Quick, easy win for Giovanella.
