O'Donnell vs. Rogers Wiki Update Wiki

O'Donnell and Rogers took to the cage for the third middleweight tournament bout at Bellator 50.


Both fighters came out aggressive and O'Donnell got caught with a knee after diving in for a takedown. Rogers spun a stunned O'Donnell around and pushed him against the cage. O'Donnell spun Rogers and separated. Rogers landed a nice straight left as O'Donnell came in. O'Donnell landed a glancing head kick then got tagged with a stiff jab. O'Donnell landed a right hook. Rogers shook off an O'Donnell takedown attempt, landed a head kick and attacked a wilting O'Donnell with a ground and pound assault, prompting the referee to call a halt to the contest in the first round. A furious O'Donnell protested the somewhat premature stoppage vehemently and the crowd booed when replayed were shown.


The official end came 1:56 into the first round, giving Rogers the TKO win.
