In addition to the night's two non-title fights, Bellator 41 features the semifinal round of the organization's eight-man featherweight tournament, officials today announced.

The bouts include Kenny Foster (9-2 MMA, 2-0 BFC) vs. Daniel Straus (15-3 MMA, 2-0 BFC) and Patricio "Pitbull" Freire (15-1 MMA, 3-1 BFC) vs. Wilson Reis (12-2 MMA, 5-2 BFC).

The event takes place April 16 at Cocopah Resort and Casino in Yuma, Ariz., and the night's main card airs on MTV2.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported, the show also features non-title fights between featherweight champion Joe Warren (6-1 MMA, 4-0 BFC) and Marcos Galvao (9-3-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC), as well as bantamweight titleholder Zach Makovsky (12-2 MMA, 4-0 BFC) vs. Chad Robichaux (11-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

The tourney fighters look to punch their tickets to the finale in May. The winner earns $100,000 in total pay and a title shot with Warren later in the year.

Foster picked up his eighth win in nine fights by submitting Eric Larkin in the opening round of the tournament earlier this month. His opponent, Straus, scored a decision win over Nazareno Malegarie for his 11th straight victory overall.

Meanwhile, Freire, who was this past season's tourney runner-up to Warren, scored a third-round TKO of Georgi Karakhanyan in this season's opening round. Reis, a former EliteXC champ and two-time Bellator tournament semifinalist, kicked off his latest tourney wun with a submission victory over Zac George.

For more on Bellator 41, stay tuned to the MMA Rumors section of the site.
I can't wait to see Bellator really start growing to the top, I think they will be the next Strikeforce when they dissolve into the UFC.

I'm actually looking forward to the FW semi's more than the two champs fighing since they are going with the non-title fight angle again. Freire vs Reis should be the finale, gonna be far out.

Joe Warren is a cracy dude. He wants to drop down to bantemweight and take that title, then he wants to win the Olympics. That is more ambitious than GSP competing on the Canadian National Team!

Why is there a Gracie Barra team anyways? I thought that is was just Gracie. I'm guessing Gracie Barra is a type of offshoot?

I wonder if they are an offshoot or something else.

It's possible they have a specific style of BJJ they teach at their gyms.
