Bellator 96 slated for June 19 with Chandler-Jansen title fight

Bellator will kick off its summer events schedule on Wednesday, June 19 with Bellator 96, which features a title fight and the start of a four-man light-heavyweight tournament.

The event takes place at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla., and the night's main card airs on Spike TV following prelims on Spike.com.

In the headliner, undefeated Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler (11-0 MMA, 8-0 BFC), who's currently ranked No. 3 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA lightweight rankings, meets recent tournament winner Dave Jansen (19-2 MMA, 6-0 BFC), a former WEC fighter who's won six straight fights, all under the Bellator banner.

In the opening round of the 205-pound tournament, former Strikeforce champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (9-2 MMA, 1-1 BFC) looks to rebound from an upset loss to Emanuel Newton in a previous tournament when he meets Seth Petruzelli (14-7 MMA, 1-1 BFC), who was bounced from a tourney by Jacob Noe in his most recent outing.

On the other side of the bracket, big-show vet and former Strikeforce champ Renato "Babalu" Sobral (37-10 MMA, 0-1 BFC), whose previous Bellator tourney run ended with a vicious KO loss to Mikhail Zayats, meets Jacob Noe (11-2 MMA, 2-1 BFC), whose nine-fight win streak also came to an end with a tourney defeat to Zayats.

Bellator 96's main card kicks off with a welterweight bout between War Machine (12-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC), who returns from a 17-month layoff to legal and injury issues, to fight Blas Avena (8-6 MMA, 1-0 BFC), a WEC vet who recently made his Bellator debut and knocked out Lenny Lovato.

Bellator 96's preliminary-card bouts will be announced in the coming weeks.

The latest Bellator 96 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (Spike TV, 10 p.m. ET)

Champ Michael Chandler vs. Dave Jansen - for lightweight title
Muhammed Lawal vs. Seth Petruzelli - light-heavyweight tournament opening round
Jacob Noe vs. Renato Sobral - light-heavyweight tournament opening round
Blas Avena vs. War Machine

I hate to say it but this is a short path for King Mo and Sobral. I'm hoping that the Season 8 welterweight tournament finals are scheduled for one of the events. That way things can wind up.

Babalu is old and done. King Mo has always been over hyped. Chandler will murder Jansen. Putting UFC washouts like Vinicius Queiroz and Petruzelli isn't doing bellator any favors in the legitimacy category (warmachine isn't helping their cause either).

And those are my thoughts on this card.

I was wondering how they were going to spread out the tournaments. My guess is that they'll do these two round, then the next round at bantamweight in July with maybe the welterweight final for season eight. August will probably be the finals including Fight Master.
