Longtime veteran Jay Hieron earned his first post-Bellator Fighting Championship victory, but it came in controversial fashion.

After locking in a second-round head-and-arm choke over late replacement Romario Da Silva, Hieron squeezed until referee Kevin Hancock stepped in and waved off the fight.

Unfortunately, Da Silva did not appear to be in any danger while offering up what appeared to be a "thumbs-up" signal and resisting the referee's tug of his arm.

The bout served as the headliner of Legacy Fighting Championship 12, which took place Friday night at Houston's Arena Theater. The evening's main card aired on AXS TV (formerly HDNet).

Drysdale should fight monthly at least until the big leagues grab him.

Jay Hieron has more undeserved victories than Leonard Garcia! He won an entire Bellator tournament by NOT submitting Anthony Lapsley, and being gifted decisions against (IIRC) Weedman and Hawn.

Is it wrong of me to want to see him lose for reasons he presumably has no control over?

lol, it's so true. I was thinking that last night. I find it ironic that he went through that tournament by getting gifts, yet he loses a controversial decision to the champ. Controversy just follows this guy.

Da Silva looked pretty good for being one week out, would like to see him scrap again.

Only guy with a bigger horseshoe up his ass was Nik Lentz in the beginning.

Total BS on Jay's part. He basicaly tricked the ref into gifting him a win by saying,"He's out!" and then pretended like he had said nothing. I lost a lot of respect for him. hopefully this gets changed to a no contest.
