We now know who will be fighting in Bellator's inaugural PPV (take 2). They announced their Spike TV preliminary card lineup on last Friday's show, and then followed that up with the finalization of the event by confirming the lineup for the Spike.com stream.
Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler complete their memorable trilogy with a main event spot, with Alvarez's lightweight belt on the line. Rampage and King Mo compete in the LHW tournament final, with the winner facing Emanuel Newton later this year. Alexander Shlemenko moves up in weight to fight Tito Ortiz, while young talents Will Brooks (who fights the Alvarez/Chandler winner) and Michael Page round out the main card.
The Spike TV prelims, in my opinion, generate more interest to me than much of the main card. Patricky Pitbull and Marcin Held determine the featherweight tournament winner, while Blagoy Ivanov and Alexander Volkov make up the HW tourney final.
Here's a look at the complete lineup, which is set for Mat 17th at the Landers Center in Southaven, Missisippi:
Main Card (PPV, 10 PM ET)
Preliminary Card (Spike TV, 8 PM ET)
Preliminary Card (Spike.com)
