Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney is asking fans to vote on what undercard fight should make TV this Saturday.
In the latest tie-in between MMA and social media, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney is asking fans on Twitter what undercard fight should make air this Saturday at Bellator 58.
Rebney took to the popular social media tool this week, asking fans to follow him and tell him what bout should join Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler, Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard vs. Trevor Prangley in a non-title fight and Marlon Sandro vs. Rafael Dias on the main card that begins on MTV2 at 7 pm EST.
He'll be taking feedback via Twitter until Friday at 12 pm EST and the winning fight will be announced during the weigh-ins.
The three fights to choose from:
Jared Hess (11-3-1) vs. Brett Cooper (15-7): The 27-year-old Hess is a Bellator veteran, former tournament finalist and has lost two of his last three. Cooper has also competed frequently in Bellator and has won four of his last five, all via T/KO.
Jessica Aguilar (11-4) vs. Lisa Ellis-Ward (14-6): A rematch five years in a making, Aguilar goes into Saturday with a two-fight winning streak and is victorious in six of her last seven. Ward hasn't competed in over a year and was last seen getting submitted by Megumi Fujii at Bellator 31.
- Farkhad Sharipov (13-4) vs. Fabio Mello (8-6): The #2 ranked World MMA 135-pounder Sharipov returns after getting a six-fight win streak snapped in September, while Mello makes his promotional return after a two-year absence and rides into Saturday with three straight wins.
To cast your vote, follow Rebney and let him know what you want to see by noon on Friday.
