Bellator's fourth visit to the Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario this past Friday night saw two competitors punch a ticket to the finals of their respective Season 7 brackets.
Shahbulat Shamhalaev became the second Russian to advance to the finals of his Season 7 tournament by making a violent example out of Mike Richman in the co-main event of the evening.
In the main event of the evening, Heavyweight Richard Hale made one of the more miraculous comebacks of 2012 with his TKO finish of Thiago Santos. When Hale meets the winner of Queiroz vs. Volkov in this seasons Heavyweight final he will be fighting in his Bellator tourney final. The only loss he's suffered in his storied Bellator career was that Light Heavyweight final bout against Christian M'Pumbu back at Bellator 45 in Lake Charles.
