Bellator MMA: Dynamite will feature PRIDE's Lenne Hardt as ring announcer

PRIDE NEVER DIE! Lenne Hardt's legendary voice will be heard on Bellator MMA's biggest ever event.

Bellator MMA

Bellator MMA is going all out to make next Saturday's "Dynamite" show a unique and truly special show for fans. Headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between unbeaten champion Liam McGeary against UFC great Tito Ortiz, "Dynamite" will also have a one-night, four-man LHW tournament to determine the next title challenger, and leading the list of names if former UFC contender Phil Davis. A Glory light heavyweight title will be contested, Paul Daley will be in the Glory portion of the show, and Josh Thomson also makes his debut inside the Bellator MMA cage.

But enough about the fights, let's get to the REAL story here. If you were a fan of PRIDE, you knew who Lenne Hardt was. Affectionately known as the "crazy PRIDE lady", Hardt was the longtime ring announcer, known for her rolling of the letter R, screaming, shouting, and exuberant fighter introductions. With PRIDE obviously gone, Hardt has been with ONE Championship for the past 3 years, but now she's coming to America on September 19th.

In an official press released, Bellator released this short audio clip (voiced by Hardt) teasing what fans can expect at the Shank Tark Shark Tank in San Jose, CA.
