Bellator Fighting Championships has its first title-holder.

The organization hosted the most recent of its weekly shows on Friday at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif. It airs tonight via one-day delay on ESPN Deportes.

After winning two previous fights to advance to the tournament finale, Joe Soto and Yahir Reyes met in the night's main event with the winner receiving Bellator's first belt and a $100,000 bonus check.

The championship bout turned out to be a blowout. Soto, who advanced to the finale with previous wins over Ben Greer and tournament favorite Wilson Reis, dominated the first round of their bout with ground and pound and ultimately scored the fight-ending submission (via rear-naked choke) at 4:11 of the second round.
