Bellator Featherweight Finale Set For February 21 Between Rad Martinez-Shahbulat Shamhalaev

Rad Martinez will compete in his home state, as he takes on Shahbulat Shamhalaev in the finals of the season seven featherweight tournament.

The bout will be the main event of the February 21 card from Salt Lake City, Utah. The bout was postponed in 2012.

“To have the opportunity to fight in Salt Lake City for the Bellator Featherweight Tournament Championship is just a dream come true,” Martinez said. “Utah has a great base of MMA fans, but we’ve never had a big MMA promotion come to Salt Lake City, so it’s a great honor to be headlining Utah’s first large scale MMA event.”

The card will also feature the semifinals of the season eight light heavyweight tournament which boasts Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, Renato Sobral and Seth Petruzelli.
