My guess was correct this time. Funky Ben will put his title on the line against Phenom Lima on April 6th in Windsor, Ontario. Oddly enough the featherweight semis will take place on the same night and they're already assuming who will advance. http://www.thescore.com/mma/articles...ine-in-windsor Either they scrapped the bantam quarters, pushed it back until the summer series, or they'll be spread out over the 62 and 63 main and prelim cards. My guess is the latter. I think Ueda-Vila or Ueda-Galvao would be an adequate headliner for the Bellator 63 WW quarters card.

Yea i'm a bit confused as to why their not doing a separate card for the Bantamweight fights. Gotta be doing them in the prelims here and there. I guess its possible they could have postponed it till the summer and have 2 summer tournaments.... Strange whatever they have decided!

Yeah, expanding the summer series would definately be a good idea. I definately don't agree that the bantemweights should be on the prelims. It should have it's own fight card.

Unrelated to season 6, Bellator have had a makeover of their website, which looks pretty good. www.bellator.com

Well, they would only be mired on the prelims for one round, and two of the fights could be fit into main cards between 62 and 63. I think the boys involved would prefer fighting sooner rather than all being featured from the beginning. Besides, if the bantam tourney is delayed until summer, then it would crowd out another tournament like say a much needed one for the heavyweight division. Cole has had a dearth of action since seizing the championship, and the trend would continue if they delay a prospective HW tourney until fall. Thankfully for them Cole has been passive about the treatment. Unfortunately for them though Chandler is a more assertive character and he's starting to itch for a fight before his next challenger would be ready. He wants to fight in spring. One of the ideas I've bandied about before to resolve this inevitable issue was Chandler-Kawajiri at a catch-weight. Otherwise, this would be a perfect time to start incorporating a tweak in the system to where if the existing champion loses a super-fight, the title is vacated, and then the super-fight winner would face the tourney winner for the championship. I know they don't want to jeopardize the meritorious system that's been created, but they need more flexibility for title challengers, could use a little more established talent flowing into the org, and if the tourney participants don't like it obviously they'd have a say on who wins the belt.

I can kind've see what you mean. So they plan to have the main events and not show them earlier in the season. Though it kind've sucks to have others in the fight card and others not.

According to Rob Joyner of S.I. and MMA Payout, the bantam quarters will be split between their April 6th and 20th events. So the tourney will spill into the summer series, but only one event in probably, and all their fights will be on main cards along way. In the end I think they struck a pretty good balance. No need to artificially constrain yourself to the time limits of one particular season. I think the bigger issue is giving one fighter 2 more weeks of recovery for the finale than the other.

Good news about Cole Konrad's future activity. Bjorn himself stated that unless there are complications from the Monster-Prindle match, the winner will face Konrad before season's end.

They have been suspiciously quiet about Lombard's impending defense against Shlemenko. I put little credence initially in the report about Lombard facing Khalidov in KSW, but I'm starting to wonder now. Regardless, they should have Lombard defend against Shlemenko on the 63 card. Shlemenko can't sit on the shelf until summer/fall and in turn the next MW tourney champ have his shot delayed also.

Seems like they are being a little smart with the whole match-ups. Not like before Viacom where they tried to jam things into a few events. It sounds like a good thing in theory but should probably only do it for the minor weightclasses.

Wagney Fabiano injured, so Mike Corey replaces him against Ronnie Mann.
