After mixed results in his initial run at light heavyweight, Travis “Diesel” Wiuff has returned to the weight class and has made real headway by making it to Bellator’s 205-pound tournament semifinals on Friday night.

For Wiuff, the move down from heavyweight was more necessity than anything else.

“Monte Cox and I were having trouble finding fights,” said Wiuff. “It was just a crazy year where fights were falling through, opponents were falling through and shows were backing out at the last moment. Then last September Monte called me and told me that Bellator was looking for someone to fight their light heavyweight champion (Christian M’Pumbu) in a super fight.

His fight tonight was kind of hard to watch IMO. His control was incredible, but it's odd to see a guy that size be in such a dominant position for so long and not be able to do much damage at all. Still impressive to have almost 70 career wins.

Diesel looks like a Man fighting teenagers, dude is so massive. I don't see anyone in Bellator stopping that guy. He already beat the champ once, I think he will again.
