A pair of Brazilian talents has been added to Bellator Fighting Championships’ sixth-season featherweight tournament, as Wagnney Fabiano and Marlon Sandro will both compete for a shot at the gold in the coming year.
Sherdog.com confirmed the tournament participation of both men on Tuesday with sources close to the fighters. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney initially tweeted news of Fabiano’s signing last week but did not specify the fighter’s tournament plans.
Fabiano hasn't competed in over a year, with his last bout being a submission loss to Joseph Benavidez at WEC 52. Sandro is a former Sengoku featherweight champion with a 3-1 record in Bellator. His only loss came to Pat Curran in the aforementioned tournament final.
In addition, Bellator has added Travis Marx to the season six bantamweight tournament.
