Bellator to host open tryout in Boston
As Massachusetts has served as a hotbed for MMA fighters in the recent years, it’s only natural to see Bellator wanting to get in the mix.
Today the fight promotion announced an open tryout next Tuesday, two days before their show at the Wang Theatre, at Sityodtong for fighters in the area.
“New England is a hotbed for MMA talent so we jumped at the chance to host another tryout in Boston while we will be in town for Bellator 17,” said Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney. “At our last two tryouts in Kansas City and South Florida, we discovered some great talents including Tyler Stinson and Bryan Goldsby. As the first major MMA promotion to come to Massachusetts, we’re in a very advantageous position to find some great unsigned fighters here.”
Registration begins at Noon at the Somerville based gym and the tryouts begin at 1 p.m. Both male and female fighters are urged to attend. Fighters are asked to bring an MMA.com federal I.D. and their own gloves.
Bellator executives will choose a winner who will earn the opportunity to fight during a Bellator Season 3 event in August, September or October.
