Bellator returns this Friday

Bellator 60 this Friday night marks the start of the promotion’s sixth season, and boasts a pretty decent card headlined by a Featherweight title fight between champion Joe Warren and soon-to-be champion Pat Curran.  If you’ll recall, Warren competed in last season’s Bantamweight tournament (since Bellator champs have plenty of free time) and was epically KTFO’d by Alexis Vila in the first round of the quarterfinals.  Pat Curran won the right to challenge for the title by winning last season’s featherweight tournament, defeating the likes of Luis Palomino (via awesome Peruvian necktie), Ronnie Mann, and Marlon Sandro in the finals “>via head kick KO.  All 2 of us Jackals that dig Bellator will surely be watching.

The rest of the main card features fights from the opening round of the Season 6 Featherweight Tournament.

Marlon Sandro   vs.   Roberto Vargas
20-3 (11 finishes)         12-1 (7 finishes) 

Alexandre ‘Popo’ Bezerra  vs.  Genair da Silva
   12-1 (11 finishes)                          11-4 (8 finishes)

Daniel Straus   vs.   Jeremy Spoon
17-4 (7 finishes)            12-0  (9 finishes)

Ronnie Mann   vs.   Mike Corey *
21-4 (14 finishes)         11-2-1 (7 finishes)
*Corey is replacing an injured Wagnney Fabiano

The prelims will air on, and will feature such dynamic and exciting UFC veterans as Sean McCorkle, Shamar Bailey, and Travis Wiuff.  Hey, it’s free.

    Not a bad card.

    Is Joe Warren going to turn into the american aoki and cry after every loss? We may find out. I don’t think his ego will take two losses in a row very well.

    Is this on SpikeTV now or still MTV?

  • Grappo

    It’s on MTV2 and EPIX until the SPIKE/UFC deal runs out at the end of 2012

    I’ll be watching this on Saturday night instead, since that’s apparently when it airs in Canuckistan.

  • Grappo

    that sucks.  when i read that i was hoping it just got bumped for some bigger event, but no, looks like a day late is the permanent schedule for Bellator in America’s Hat.
