On Thursday, March 21, Bellator MMA visted Lewiston, Maine for its 93rd event at the The Androscoggin Colisee.

In the night’s main event, the Season 7 lightweight tournament finally came to resolution as Marcin Held met Dave Jansen. The pair were originally scheduled to meet at Bellator 84, but age restrictions at the fight venue prevented Held from competing. As such, the fight was pushed to the current, Season 8 calendar.

Also on the main card, rising heavyweight contender Ryan Martinez locked horns with well-traveled UFC veteran Travis Wiuff, who made the jump back to heavyweight after a failed run in last season’s 205-pound tournament. Each looked to claim a spot in the promotion’s recently announced Summer Series tournament.

Another UFC veteran, Marcus Davis, made his promotional debut at welterweight against Strikeforce veteran Waachiim Spiritwolf.

A fourth main card bout between former Strikeforce heavyweight title challenger Brett Rogers and Bellator veteran Eric Prindle was nixed at the last minute due to an injury to Prindle.

The event aired live on Spike TV beginning at 10 p.m. ET. All of the preliminary card action streamed live on Spike.com starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
