Lightweight tournament quarters at Bellator 62. Rene Nazare the last confirmed entrant.

Quarters: Pitbull v Woodard, Hawn v Tirloni, Weedman v Ambrose, Nazare v Michel.

Some nice match-ups, Weedman-Ambrose is worst of the lot, and i'm suprised they didn't split Hawn and Tirloni up and have one face Weedman and the other Ambrose. Some really intriguing fights though!

He violated his probation terms.

Updates:

Dantas reports he will challenge Makovsky for the belt on April 13th at Bellator 65.

Petruzelli believes he'll be the final member of the summer series LHW tourney. "Nothing is signed, but soon".

Damian Grabowski confirmed his upcoming bout with Mike Hayes on Bellator's debut card, March 9th. That card is loaded barring injuries.

Speculation:

I'm guessing Askren's defense against Lima happens April 6th at Bellator 64 in Windsor. Lima's last MFC bout occurred there.

They must not seriously be using Amoussou-Lozano to headline Bellator 63. That would be a joke. It badly needs Lombard-Shlemenko as an attention grabber.

So they are going to finally get the bantemweight defense in there? It's about time. As for Petruzelli it looks like he's re-establishing himself.

War Machine said its for some old stuff before he went to prison, rather than violating his probation.

And Sherdogs reporting that M1 have gone to court to prevent Vasilevsky from fighting for Bellator, as they have a contract with him through 2012. I can see him being pulled from the tournament and Cooper or someone replacing him.

Cooper said he wants to fulfill the remaining one fight obligation on his contract and make the jump to UFC, unless that was his reaction to being initially spurned. I do think the UFC would be a good fit because he has a high finish rate, is in a lot of FOTN candidates, and is a solid competitor but not contender in whatever major organization he occupies.

Trey Houston might be a good option as a replacement in this case because the jump in comp wouldn't be enormous to Victor O'Donnell. He or Paraisy were the worst participants in the tourney.
