Tonight in Thackerville Bellator MMA will close out three Season 9 tournaments live on Spike TV. Cheick Kongo will look to earn his first Bellator title shot if he can get past late replacement Peter Graham in the heavyweight finals that will also serve as the main event. Kongo has just one win inside the promotion but is only two fights away from championship gold.
Bantamweights Joe Warren and Travis Marx will collide to see who moves on for a title opportunity. Warren is the former featherweight champion and is looking to cap off this four man tournament with a win over a very tough Marx.
Mikkel Parlo has sailed through to the finals in the stacked middleweight tournament. He did have to shed a small amount of weight after his first attempt on the scale but the fight is a go as he meets Brennan Ward tonight at the WinStar World Casino.
