I thought there was going to be a featherweight tournament for the summer series. Well I guess it'll be lightweight. Either way I see Curran is probably going to drop down in weight.

Yeah, doing one tournament during the summer series really isn't a bad idea. I can also see them doing title fights during the summer series. The reason why they are doing this is because MTV2 really doesn't have any other programming.

When is there going to be another women's tournament? I know that Strikeforce under Zuffa has started to underplay women's MMA but Bellator shouldn't have to follow suit. Speaking of which, if Zuffa does shut down the women's divisions completely after they fold Strikeforce, Bellator can hold women's 145 pound and women's 135 pound tournaments.

In reguards to what? Cause I have been up to date on the developmets for season five and there isn't going to be a women's tournament then. But in reguards to when it would be I'm still clueless.
