Bellator Bantamweight tournament announced for Season 5


First round match-ups in the Bellator bantamweight tournament. The tournament kicks off on Sept 24 and will air on MTV2.

Joe Warren, Bellator featherweight champion
Alexis Vila, Olympic bronze medalist in wrestling

Joe Soto, former Bellator featherweight champion
Eduardo Dantas

Ed West
Luiz Nogueira

Chase Beebe, WEC bantamweight champion
Marcos Galvao

Winner of the tournament getts a crack at current Bellator champion Zach Makovsky.

“To say our Season Five Bantamweight tournament is stacked is a gross understatement,” said Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Warren-Vila is going to be absolutely explosive for as long as it lasts, and the inclusion of Dantas, Nogueira, Chase, Soto, Ed and Luis makes every single fight in this tournament a pick’em adventure. This should be an unbelievable tournament for our fans watching live on MTV2.”

First of all I agree the Bellator BW tournament will be the sex, but....I'm absolutely mystified as to why you would refer to the Cruz-Faber title fight as being a weak main event in another thread

The whole 'anti-ufc' bullshit is nonsense. What you have is quality MMA, shown for FREE on a weekly basis. For whatever reason it's not discussed much on this site.

Love Bellator. I think Bellator's BW and FW divisions are nearly as stacked as the UFC's at the moment.

I see that you have a recent join date and are new here.From your post it seems like you're mistaken about what type of site this is.I think you may find what you're looking for on a website called matbattle.
