Bellator Fighting Championships makes their debut tonight at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
The two big names on the card are Eddie Alvarez and Jorge Masvidal. Both fighters are in Bellator’s lightweight tournament, and unless a major upset happens or injury strikes, they both should make their way to tournament final.
As you probably already know, the event will air on ESPN Deportes via tape delay on Saturday night. Good news for those who don’t have Deportes or wish to understand what the commentators are saying, Bellator will be publishing an English broadcast of the event on their website. ESPN MMA Live host John Anik and “Human Weapon” co-star Jason Chambers will be calling the action. Unfortunately, it does not appear there is any way to watch the event live unless you actually attend.
The weigh-ins took place yesterday, but at the present time, results are nowhere to be found. TheMMAFiend attended the weigh-ins and said one fighter did not make weight, but didn’t specify who it was. We’ll update this post with the results when they become available.
