Neil Grove is making his first appearance since suffering a submission (keylock) loss to Cole Konrad in the Bellator heavyweight tournament final match. "Goliath" will welcome The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 veteran, Zak Jensen, to the Bellator cage for the first time ever. The 265-pound showdown, which will be officiated by Yves LaVigne, will lead off the MTV2 telecast.
ROUND ONE: Jensen comes out swnging right away and connects, dropping Grove to a knee and boxing his ears. Grove weathers the storm and reverses, gets into full guard and starts delivering vicious ground and pound. He stops and sits back, angling for an ankle lock. Jensen doesn't seem to feel threatened and batters Grove's belly. Grove responds by unloading repeated hammer fists to his opponent's face simultaneously. Wild action to start this fight. Grove gives up the position and heads back into full guard, which Jensen attempts to defend with a guillotine choke. Grove works his way out and lands in mount yet again. He starts to once again rain down heavy, heavy shots that are finding their marks. Grove nails him with several elbows and hard shots that make Jensen go limp. That's it! Fight is stopped just two minutes into the fight. It wasn't pretty, but that was 120 seconds on non-stop action. Fun fight.
