As with every major show, BloodyElbow.com will be here to bring you live results and commentary for Bellator XVI. The live blog will start with the beginning of the FSN broadcast (at 8PM ET) so make sure to make Bloody Elbow your home for this event.
As always we have our one rule: NO SPOILERS! In the interest of not ruining anything from the undercard that may make the broadcast we ask that you do not discuss the results of the undercard in the comments until either the broadcast ends or the fight makes the air.
So again, join us for the show and share your thoughts as the event unfolds.
A note: Results are below the fold. Please be aware that while I'll not spoil the live results on the front page, we will not be waiting to talk about the results on the front page. There will likely be multiple articles on the night's action up by tomorrow.
