    Bellator 101 Debuts Lightweight Tournament

    Thu, 2013-09-26 20:32 — Benjamin Bieker

     Bellator kicks off its 101st MMA event tomorrow, and it is lined with a lot of great lightweight prospects and veterans. Also, in the main event another bantamweight tournament semifinal takes place when Joe Warren and Nick Kirk. It seems like a weird thing considering that Warren was knocked out in practice no more than a month ago. Plus with two knockout losses in his last four fights it may seem that Warren's chin is gone, but even though this is the main event it is not the most intriguing fight on the card.

    UFC on Fox Killer Card Rumors

Instead, former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson sill be fighting in the main event against newly minted Anthony Pettis. Thomson may only be 1-1 in his last two fights, but his scintillating knockout of Nate Diaz and Grant's injury moved him into the main event.
