One had a thrilling finish, and the other was 25 minutes of back-and-forth striking. In the end, both lightweight champion Michael Chandler and featherweight champ Pat Curran defended their belts at Bellator 85. Plus, three fighters punched tickets into the semifinals of the Season 8 light heavyweight tournament.

The event, which kicked off Bellator's eighth season and its move to Spike TV, took place at Bren Events Center on the campus of the University of California-Irvine.

When it came down to it, Michael Chandler made it look rather easy...

I really liked the Curran / Freire fight. Curran's boxing looked real good. I think he could have ended it if he was more aggressive.

I was shocked that one of the judges gave the fight to Pitbull. It was a good close fight but there is no way Curran lost three rounds.

I agree, definitely should have been a UD, but at least the right guy won
