On Saturday night in San Diego, CA Bellator hosted Bellator 300, an event that was meant to be historic for the promotion. The card was originally set to have four title fights but after Linton Vassell fell ill it was reduced to three. Then former champion Ilima-Lei Macfarlane missed weight making the third title fight complicated.

But overall the night was a success. In the main event, lightweight champion Usman Nurmagomedov remained undefeated by besting Brent Primus on the scorecards, retaining his title, and advancing to the Bellator Grand Prix finals. In the co-main event, Cris "Cyborg" Justino returned to MMA after boxing for two years to prove she's still the GOAT with a first-round TKO of Cat Zingano. And Liz Carmouche battered friend and former teammate Macfarlane for a fifth-round TKO finish.

Now the California State Athletic Commission has released the payouts for the card (h/t MMA Junkie).
