Bellator announces 4-man tournaments in summer


In a quest to keep champions more active, Bellator has announced four-man tournaments for its upcoming summer series. The competitions will take place in the heavyweight, light-heavyweight and bantamweight divisions.

The opening date for the summer series has yet to be announced and the promotion did not name any entrants into any of the tournament fields, but just a few weeks ago, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney told MMA Fighting that the plan was to get free-agent acquisition "King" Mo Lawal "busy as quickly as humanly possible," after his recent loss, and that he would be expected to go through the tourney gauntlet again. With the inclusion of his weight class in the summer series, he is a near-lock to be a part of the 205-pound field.

When Bellator's regular season returns in the fall, the promotion will return to eight-man tournament fields.

Are you high?There is no way all of those fights happen in the summer.I think maybe one or two happen in the summer.I think Chandler/Jansen and Askren/Koreshkov will happen and the rest in the fall.

im a little shocked Shlemenko has gone this long without fighting. i think that car accident really messed him up. he has looked much more sluggish since then (even though he has won both fights since returning from the injuries)

Idk, Josh always does his own thing, he turned down the UFC, if he still wants a lot of people see him do his thing, cut promos or whatever, Bellator seems to be his best option, his fights would get close to a million probably, he could get a "coach" spot, some commetary stuff like they offered Eddie I would assume Would still be allowed to wrestle also

Is a deal with Barnett really possible? Because if so that's an immediate massive improvement.
