What a mess the season five heavyweight tournament has turned out to be. It all started with eight heavyweights with Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos emerging as the finalists. With a shot at the heavyweight crown, the two fought at Bellator 59 on November 26th, effectively ruining the tournament.

What a difference a week makes. Following last week’s Bellator 58 that featured a fight of the year candidate, Bellator 59 ended season five on an unfortunate sour note. Featuring two tournament finals and two exciting lightweight bouts on the main card, things looked promising on paper.
Bellator’s season five has been one of the greatest for the promotion and it will come to a close at this Saturday’s Bellator 58 event in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Coming off last weekend’s exciting lightweight championship main event that saw Michael Chandler defeat Eddie Alvarez, the guys on Saturday’s card have a tough act to follow.
Last night Bellator continued to wrap up their 4th season of tournament fights with an exciting card in Atlantic City. Michael Chandler improved his record to 8-0 when he faced Patricky Freire (9-2). Chandler kept Freire at bay excelling in the mental aspect of the fight, taking it where Freire never thought it would be. The mental edge was key as well as the occasional yet unintentional kicks to the lower section of Freire to slow the beast.
The end is near for the fourth season of Bellator Fighting Championship as we have arrived at the second to last event in Bellator 44. Live from the Caesars Atlantic City in Atlantic City, New Jersey and airing live on MTV2, Bellator 44 offers up a main card full of talent.
The successful fourth season for Bellator Fighting Championship is nearing its completion, having only three events left. The season four tournaments have also reached the end and the four final bouts will place out over the remaining events.
We’re back, with five more fights you won’t want to miss this month. May does have 31 days, so why not run out another five fights to keep you occupied this month
