Quote:
The semifinal round of Bellator Fighting Championships' season-four welterweight tournament has already taken shape.

Following the conclusion of the quarterfinal round, Bellator CEO announced that former champ Lyman Good will meet Rick Hawn at Bellator 39, and Jay Hieron vs. Brent Weedman will clash at a date yet to be determined.

The Hieron-Weedman fight will be scheduled when Weedman receives clearance for a facial laceration suffered in his Bellator 35 victory over Dan Hornbuckle.

The promotion had originally anticipated hosting both welterweight tournament semifinals at Bellator 39.

Good (11-1 MMA, 4-1 BFC) and Hawn (10-0 MMA, 2-0 BFC) scored the most decisive victories of this past Saturday night's quarterfinal matchups, conducted at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino. The former champ and the Olympic judoka each relied heavily on staunch striking games en route to clear-cut unanimous-decision wins.

Hawn brings an unblemished mark to the table, but Good has revenge on his mind as he tries to earn a rematch with current champ Ben Askren, who took the title from Good during the promotion's third season.

Good and Hawn meet at Bellator 39, which takes place April 2 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.

Meanwhile, Hieron (20-4 MMA, 1-0 BFC) and Weedman (18-5-1 MMA, 4-0 BFC) each made rather dubious advances into the semifinals.

Hieron was in complete control of his quarterfinal matchup with Anthony Lapsley, but the performance was marred but what appeared to be an early stoppage. Hieron applied a rear-naked choke, and referee Josh Rosenthal ruled "The Recipe" unconscious and ended the fight. However, Lapsley quickly jumped to his feet to protest, causing many MMA observers to believe he was fine to continue.

Weedman fought the distance against Dan Hornbuckle in an entertaining, grappling-heavy affair. While Weedman's performance was commendable, his decision win was greeted with a chorus of boos from the Tachi Palace crowd who believes "The Handler" should have been awarded the victory.

A title fight between lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez (21-2 MMA, 5-0 BFC) and season-two tourney winner Pat Curran (12-3 MMA, 3-0 BFC) will headline Bellator 39 on April 2.

Bellator Chairman and CEO confirmed the once-canceled title fight with MMAFighting.com on Wednesday.

A source told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) it was booked for the show, which takes place at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., because of Alvarez's Northeast roots.

The fight airs on MTV2 as part of Bellator's new three-year deal with the cable outlet.

After Alvarez won the season-one tournament and Curran the season-two tourney, they were scheduled for a title fight in season three. But Curran was forced out of the bout due to a shoulder injury, and Alvarez instead fought and defeated eliminated tourney fighter Roger Huerta in a non-title fight.

Alvarez now carries a six-fight win streak into the bout and an 11-1 record in his past 12 fights. All but two of the wins (over Matt Lee and Joachim Hansen) came via stoppage. In fact, while known for heavy hands, Alvarez has posted submission wins in five of his past six victories.

Curran, the cousin of former UFC/WEC fighter Jeff Curran, punched his ticket to the title with tourney wins over Mike Ricci, Huerta and Toby Imada. He's now won four straight and six of his past seven.

Alvarez should definitely take this fight. Hopefully Ben Saunders gets a win here as well.

I'm pulling for Killa B as well, hopefully he can work his way back into the UFC but they have good welterweight wrestlers in other companies too. I was bummed to see they pushed back that Hieron vs Weedman fight back, but they moved up a good replacemtent in Imada/Freire if that really goes down this weekend. Here are some pretty good under card fights for Bellator:

So we see Eddie's first title defense. The way he has been walking all over people I think he should win this. But then again this is MMA.

Really good card, im looking forward to the middle 2 fights most, think their both really close. I expect Alvarez to beat Curran comfortably, 2nd round TKO i think, and the same with Saunders. Good v Hawn is very close, Hawns biggest challenge by far but i think Good's experience against the better oposition will be the difference and he'll win by decision. Imada v Freire is a really good style match too, i think Freire will look good early but Imada will get it to the mat eventually for a 2nd/3rd round submission.

Alvarez, Good, Imada and Saunders for me, should be some fun fights though. Veach v Nazare should be a really good fight too, 6-0 prospect v UFC vet, I think Veach wil ltake it though he's a solid fighter. Looking forward to it.

Lee's face looks like he was a murder victim in a horror movie.

That was grotesque...brutal, brutal fight.
