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.
Bellator 81 took place Friday night at the Ryan Center in Kingston, RI. and featured season 7’s lightweight tournament semifinal round between Rich Clementi and Marcin Held.
