It's a great week for fight fans. We've got a fun, action filled UFC card on Saturday, but first Bellator is putting two titles on the line this Friday as "Ill" Will Brooks makes the second defense of his lightweight title against Marcin Held and Patricio "Pitbull" Freire puts his title on the line against Daniel Straus in a trilogy fight for the two featherweights. Throw in two huge heavyweights, a former lightweight champion, and a talented featherweight prospect and the main card should be rock solid.

As always, if our Ooyala player isn't working for you, you can find the whole show over on YouTube. And while you're there, remember to subscribe to MMANATIONDOTCOM and to give us a "Like".
