Bellator Season 10


Quote:
Bellator MMA’s upcoming 10th season is slated for March 7 with a headlining title fight, as well as the opening round of an eight-man heavyweight tournament, the organization today announced.

Headlining the card is a bout between bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas (15-3 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) and 2013 Summer Series tournament winner Rafael “Morcego” Silva (21-3 MMA, 2-0 BMMA).

The card takes place at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. The main card, including the title fight and tourney bouts, airs on Spike TV following prelims on Spike.com.

Dantas, who’s ranked No. 8 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA bantamweight rankings, looks for his second consecutive title defense. After submitting Zach Makovsky to win the title in 2012, the Brazilian and Nova Uniao member suffered a knockout loss to Tyson Nam in a non-title bout at Shooto Brazil 33. However, the 24-year-old rebounded with a knockout victory over friend and mentor Marcos Glavao at Bellator 89 this past February.

After recovering from a leg injury, he now meets Silva, who defeated Rodrigo Lima and Anthony Leone to win his tournament title this past year. The 28-year-old Brazilian has now won 13 straight fights, with 10 of the victories coming via stoppage.

The heavyweight tourney, meanwhile, features some familiar names. The matchups include recently dethroned champ Alexander Volkov (19-4 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) vs. Mark Holata (12-4 MMA, 3-2 BMMA), and former tourney finalist Ryan Martinez (10-3 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) vs. UFC/Stikeforce vet Lavar Johnson (17-8 MMA, 0-1 BMMA).

Other matchups include Peter Graham (9-6 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) vs. Siala Siliga (5-2 MMA, 2-0 BMMA), and Blagoi Ivanov (9-0 MMA, 4-0 BMMA) vs. Rich Hale (21-6-1 MMA, 6-3 BMMA).

This excites me. But really, this is the best HW tourney they have had yet.

Martinez vs Johnson is going to be a war. I think that is the fight I want to see most out of the 4 quarter final matches.

Also very interested to see Blagoi tested. Would be a great story to see him rise from his death bed to fulfill the potential he has displayed early in his career.

Mighty Mo vs Graham could be interesting, I hope it is not a long fight or it could get ugly.

I think Volkov should get by Holata without too much trouble.

It's too bad Queiroz isn't in this, but he might still be injured.

Right now I think the finals will be Volkov vs Ivanov, if Ivanov still has what he showed before his attack. Ryan Martinez is my dark horse, his fight with Minakov last season was pretty crazy.

That is a pretty decent lineup, not a Can to be seen

Expecting Volkov to go all the way.

I wondered where Kongo fitted into all of this...

sure this tournament is to find out who fights the winner of Minakov/Kongo?

Yes he is supposed to fight the champ before the HW tourney is wrapped up. I saw Rebney respond to a fan question confirming it but it was on twitter and can't remember his exact words or dig up a link.
