Bellator 60 is now official for March 9, and the card will host Bellator Fighting Championships' season-six featherweight tournament quarterfinals, as well as a 145-pound championship fight.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported, featherweight champ Joe Warren headlines the event against Pat Curran.

Bellator officials today announced the card also features Marlon Sandro vs. Roberto Vargas, Wagnney Fabiano vs. Ronnie Mann, Alexandre "PoPo" Bezerra vs. Genair da Silva and Jeremy Spoon vs. Daniel Straus.

Bellator 60 takes place at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind. The evening's main card airs on MTV2, and the prelims stream free on Spike.com.

Sandro (20-3 MMA, 3-1 BFC), a former World Victory Road/Sengoku champion and ex-King of Pancrase, defeated da Silva and Nazareno Malegarie before his head-kick-KO loss to Curran in Bellator's recent "Summer Series" tourney finale. He's now 6-2 over his past eight fights, and the defeats came to Curran and notable Hatsu Hioki in Japan.

The Brazilian fighter and Nova Uniao team member returned to Bellator in the recently concluded "Summer Series" season and picked up a first-round submission victory over Rafael Dias in a non-tourney fight. It marked his 11th stoppage win in 20 career victories.

Vargas (12-1 MMA, 1-1 BFC) has fought twice under the Bellator banner; "Beto" earned a unanimous-decision win over Daniel Pineda at Bellator 6 before the split-decision defeat to Reis at Bellator 10. Since then, he's won six straight fights, which included a recent split-decision victory over previously unbeaten Jared Downing at Shark Fights 20.

Fabiano (14-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC) competes for the first time since a WEC 52 bantamweight loss to Joseph Benavidez saw him released from the promotion. Fabiano went 4-2 during a six-fight streak under the WEC banner, earning wins over Frank Gomez, Clint Godfrey, Fredson Paixao and Akitoshi Tamura while losing to Benavidez and Mackens Semerzier.

Prior to his WEC run, Fabiano earned six-straight wins fighting for the International Fight League, becoming the promotion's first and only featherweight champion and defending the title once before the promotion shuttered.

Mann (21-4-1 MMA, 3-1 BFC), a former Cage Rage and World Victory Road/Sengoku fighter, joined Bellator earlier this year. After knocking out Adam Schindler in the opening round of the "Summer Series" tourney, he suffered a decision loss to Pat Curran in the semifinals and was bounced from the tournament.

During the recently concluded "Summer Series," Mann had a successful return to competition and submitted Kenny Foster to help secure a berth in the season-six tourney. Mann is now 5-1 over his past six fights and 10-2 over the past four years. Aside from Curran, the Team Tompkins fighter's only other loss during the stretch came to notable Hatsu Hioki in the 2009 Sengoku featherweight grand prix.

Bezerra (11-1 MMA, 4-0 BFC) should be a familiar name to Bellator fans, as the Brazilian has competed four times for the promotion in non-tournament contests. All four fights ended via stoppage and three came in the very first round.

Bezerra's lone career loss came via submission in a September 2009 bout with current UFC contender Charles Oliveira. Eleven of his 12 wins have via stoppage (four knockouts and seven submissions).

Da Silva (11-4 MMA, 1-1 BFC), a Brazilian who had a successful three-year run on the country's regional circuit, signed with Bellator earlier this year before suffering the defeat to Sandro. However, he made a victorious return to the organization and secured his spot in the upcoming tournament with a recent first-round submission victory over Bellator regular Bryan Goldsby in October at Bellator 52.

Da Silva now owns eight stoppages (six knockouts) in 11 career wins. He's also won five of his past six fights.

Spoon (12-0 MMA, 2-0 BFC) secured his tourney berth with a recent Bellator 56 win over Adam Schindler. He also owns a Bellator victory over Jerrod Sanders and an early-career win over Jose Vega, who eventually joined Bellator.

Straus (17-4 MMA, 3-1 BFC) is a former tourney finalist, earning his way to the finals of the promotion's season-four tournament with wins over Kenny Foster and Nazareno Malegarie. Straus suffered a decision loss in the finals to Patricio "Pitbull" Freire.

Either that or Joe Warren is going to prove he isn't done in his rise. Personally I think he's bordering along the lines of crazy. Who goes for a bantemweight belt while they have a featherweight belt then also tries for the olympics?
