Review: 2014-10-03, some good exchanges in the last part of the fight but it is not enough to get three stars: Rob Emerson vs Rafael Silva gets two stars. The black belt in kyokushin karate Robert Emerson entered this fight with a mma record of 17-10-0 (59% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.18 bantamweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2011 when he faced Justin Salas, since then he has won five consecutive bouts, the last one against Joe Taimanglo.
His opponent, Rafael Silva, has an official record of 21-4-0 (81% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.31 in the same weight class, he won the Bellator Bw tournament in 2013 but then he lost to Joe Warren on May 2014 (=Warren vs Silva). ‘Morcego’ Silva vs Emerson is on the undercard of Daniel Straus vs Justin Wilcox – Bellator 127.
