I knew that Viacom wanted to increase the number of contenders for champions. They also wanted to do away with superfights. That is understandable considering the recent loss of a champion in one.

There's a report that Bellator will now hold a sixth tournament, this one in the light heavyweight class, during the upcoming season. Although I can't vouch for the credibility of the source.

I have noticed Bellator are using Richard Rare Breed in their promos so that adds some evidential support to the report.

The more tournaments the better. If there were 6 some would probably have to take place on the undercard, i hope they stick the undercard fights on spike.tv again. I was actually suprised there wasn't lightheavyweights in season 6 as they've signed some good fighters for it.

Though i can't see it happening to be honest, i think its more likely for them to do another summer tournament with lightheavyweights.

Well here's more confirmation that it is taking place in season six, but at the same time contradictorily states it'll happen during the summer.

http://mmadiehards.com/live/features...e-up-revealed/

Here's the field:
Richard "Rare Breed" Hale
Marcus Vanttinen
Attila "the Hun" Vegh
Roger "Hulk" Hollett
Raphael Davis
Travis "Chosen" Wiuff
Beau Tribolet
????

If it weren't going down the same time as the other tourneys I don't know why they would be announcing the field already.

I hope for the fighter's sakes who were promised upon signing they would be competing in a tourney ASAP, and the others who need work, that the tournament is happening this season.

It is possible that one is set for the summer and the others are for the spring. More than likely they are really getting things set up. Like I said Viacom wants contenders set.

I e-mailed Jordan Breen (of sherdog) asking him about it, and he replied saying there is just discussions about it, nothing has been decided either way yet. So i think the story that website ran listing the fighters in the tournament was rubbish. Still think they'll stick with 5, and do the lightheavyweight one as a summer series, between 6 and 7.

That website also says match-ups include Saunders-Amaya, Amoussou-War Machine & Rogers-Vianna. When the match-ups do get released, we can compare wioth these to see the authenticity of the site....

Well supposedly they are going to be doing alot more programming now. Not just the summer series and seasons but also one off events. But that probably isn't happening until next year.

I doubt the final choice for the MW tourney will be Cory Macdonald....

Let’s hope Cory MacDonald’s appearance with the Kingston Provincial Court goes well tomorrow (Tuesday). The Bellator Middleweight, along with five other correctional officers, is facing charges of assault against an inmate on Oct 4th according to the local Kingston paper.
Cooper (alright w/ me), Houston (don't know), Paraisy (not a fan), JT Money (yuck), Marquardt (yes!), or Chalidow (I'd piss myself).

FWIW, those fights have all been confirmed on the fighter's own Twitter pages or other websites. I'm sure mmadiehards had information about the LHW tourney and its participants, they just may have been confused as to when it would technically be occurring. It's ambiguous as to which season the summer series would actually be part of. It sounds like Bellator hasn't decided if it will be in season six or the summer series from that Breen quote.
