Bellator MMA has a big event on tap for Friday, March 13th at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. Atop the card is reigning double champion Patricio Freire against SBG’s Pedro Carvalho in a fight that is not just a title defense for “Pitbull,” but also a quarterfinal for Bellator’s ongoing featherweight grand prix. In the other quarterfinal, Daniel Weichel squares off against Emmanuel Sanchez. The winners will face each other in the semifinals.
As for the rest of the main card, Paul Daley and Sabah Homasi should be a welterweight banger. Anatoly Tokov takes on Fabio Aguiar, Matt Mitrione replaces Josh Barnett (who failed his medicals) against Ronny Markes, while Nick Newell looks to get back in the win column against Zach Zane.
The likes of Robson Gracie Jr, Baby Slice, Leslie Smith, Leandro Higo, and Ion Pascu are all on the prelims. This is a pretty good event from top to bottom and there should be plenty of entertainment throughout the evening.
