I wish they were doin another HW tourney along with BW, FW, WW and MW. It is needed.

Still want to see more of Mike Hayes and Blagoi Ivanov who were injured out of this years Tourney. Want to see Prindle and Santos have a real fight. Groove, Sparks, Buenatello, Petruzzeli, yes please. Lure a guy like Gugenishvili, maybe someone like Kenny Garner, or Eddie Sanchez. Keep the HWs active but stagger their Tourney more than the lighter weights to a 6 week layoff as opposed to a 4.

Two fighters are the first confirmed participants for Bellator's upcoming season-six welterweight tournament.


Bellator officials today announced Carlos Alexandre Pereira (33-9-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) as an entrant in the eight-man tournament.


Additionally, as MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported,
War Machine (12-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC) – perhaps best known as UFC fighter Jon
Koppenhaver before a legal name change – also is part of the tournament
field, officials today confirmed.


The tourney kicks off in March on MTV2.

Yeah, his last fight was at 175 i think. They were pretty much hyping that he would be involved in the WW tournament. Good move. He seemed like a natural WW to me.

when his clean punches were bouncing off an unaffected Prangley I then concluded he would be better off at ww.

LW tournament almost full...a couple former WW tournament fighters going down a weight class.

Rick Hawn(11-1)
Brent Weedman(18-7)
Ricardo Tirloni(14-1)
Patricky Friere(10-2)
Thiago Michel(9-2)
J.J Ambrose(17-3)

I'm assuming Marcin Held will soon be announced in the tournament. Then there is Horodecki...looks like Eddie Alvarez won't be in it.

Is it possible that since Eddie is no longer Champion that he is free to sign elsewhere?

Not at the moment. Im pretty sure his champions clause had not taken effect at the time he lost the title so he still has fights left with Bellator from his original contract. I think it was only like 1 or 2 left..entering the tournament is pretty much another champions clause unless you lose. They will probably need to sign him to a new conract to get him in one of their tournaments. What they should do is make a rematch FOR the title...i know it's against their model but the first fight warrants a rematch and Bellator does not want to put Eddie in fights where he can build up a new streak and possibly leave. Especially not do that non-title superfight shit like Chandler-Eddie/ He can lose to Chandler again or win the title back and be under their clause again. Thats how i would set it up. I would not give Eddie the fight with Aoki or anything. I give him a chance to win the title back.

A very solid fighter, why is he not in the UFC? He was 3-2 and won his last 2 fights in the UFC? I really took notice of him when I saw him fight in Dallas vs Rick Story. It was a good fight until Story's strength took over on the ground.

Baker should be a huge WW. Guy really just kept fucking himself over in the MW tournaments. Especially that last one against Vianna,

12-0 Bruno Santos is added to the MW tournament. He has dominated some pretty good competition record wise. Seems to not finish though..Last 9 have been unanimous decision wins.

Santos will fight Giva Santana in the first round.

Victor O'Donnell(11-3) is also in the MW tournament for the second time.

Roger Hollett(13-3) and Marcus Vanttinen(21-3) are added to the recently announced 205 tournament this season and will be facing eachother in the first round. Expect Attila Vegh, Richard Hale, and probably Travis Wiuff to be added.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney tells Matt Erickson that's the date Curran
(16-4 MMA, 6-1 BFC) will face featherweight champ Joe Warren (7-2 MMA,
5-2 BFC) for the 145-pound title.

The contest serves as the main event of Bellator 61 and takes place at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind.

should def enjoy a pretty good size advantage.

But I don't count Warren out. Staying away from putting too much weight into the last fight of each fighter.

Bellator Inks ROC Champion Taleb for April Show in Canada


Canadian welterweight Nordine Taleb has signed to fight for the Bellator Fighting Championships in 2012.

Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a source close to the fighter following an initial report from TopMMANews.com. Taleb will not compete in the Season 6 tournament, according to Sherdog’s source. Rather, the Tristar representative will make his promotional debut at a to-be-named Canadian event in April.

The reigning Ring of Combat welterweight champion, Taleb rides a five-fight winning streak heading into his Bellator debut. The once-beaten Montreal resident captured the ROC belt in his most recent outing, stopping UFC veteran Pete Sell on Nov. 18.

The lone loss of Taleb’s career came in his second career bout, as he was knocked out by Guillaume DeLorenzi in 2008. Since that defeat, the welterweight has rattled off five consecutive wins, finishing four of his conquered foes by knockout.
