Bellator 47 makes Canadian debut with a stacked cardPosted on July 22, 2011, 03:22 PM by Ryan Ventura
Bellator Fighting Championship makes it's long awaited debut in 'The Great White North' in Rama, Ontario on July 23th with a stellar night of fights featuring many familiar names among fans. Originally the card was headlined by the featherweight title main event of Joe Warren vs. Patricio Freire was supposed to go down, but 'The Pitbull' broke his hand during training with the fight due to take place on a later date. But even without the high profile main event, we'll still be treated to the continuation of the featherweight tournament with semi-final bouts between Pat Curran vs. Ronnie Mann and Marlon Sandro vs. Nazareno Malegarie. Heavyweights Neil Grove and Zak Jensen are set to square off and Team Tompkins / WEC veteran Chris Horodecki will be making his Bellator debut against Chris Saunders.
Card starts at 6PM PST / 9PM EST on MTV2 in the USA and The Score in Canada.
