|Bellator Goes Brock Samson|
Read it here....but basically Bellator is coming out full guns blazing with its move to Spike.
I've always had love for Bellator namely b/c they guys fight to win rather than not to lose
From over at Cagepotato -
"Michael Chandler will make his first official lightweight title defense at the event (aka Bellator 85) against Rick Hawn, the 14-1 Olympic judoka who won the Season 5 lightweight tournament earlier this year.
...featherweight champion Pat Curran...will be putting his belt on the line against explosive contender Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.
...Season 8 will last 12 weeks, and will feature five tournaments in the featherweight, lightweight, welterweight, middleweight and light heavyweight divisions.
- Via MMAJunkie: “[Bellator 85] will feature Seth Petruzelli and Mike Guymon, plus the Bellator debut of Renato ‘Babalu’ Sobral in the light heavyweight tourney against Russian Mikhail Zayats.” UFC vets Jason Lambert and Hector Ramirez are also scheduled to compete."
