Bellator MMA was set to kick off their ninth season with a respectable card. However, medical issues have forced Joe Riggs and Joe Warren off the card, so a lot of the shine has dissipated. However, there is still a middleweight title fight and the first round of another Bellator tournament. The card takes place tomorrow night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The main card will air live on Spike.
The Bellator MMA promotion will be visiting Charlotte, North Carolina for the first time on February 14 at the Bojangles Coliseum. The event will air LIVE on Spike TV and will be headlined by the Bellator Bantamweight World Championship fight between champion Eduardo Dantas and challenger Marcos Galvao.
Bellator 69 takes place this evening at L’Auberge du Lac Casino and Resort in Lake Charles, La., and features the finals of the Season 6 middleweight tournament between Maiquel Falcao and Andreas Spang. Also on the card is a season six welterweight tournament semifinal bout between Karl Amoussou and David Rickels and a women’s 125 pound bout between Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar.
