The field is just about set for Bellator’s upcoming welterweight tournament.

Ten of the promotion’s best at 170 pounds will be featured in the bracket, including current champion Rory MacDonald; former champions Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov; undefeated welterweights Michael Page, Neiman Gracie, Ed Ruth, and Yaroslav Amosov; and former UFC standouts Lorenz Larkin and Jon Fitch.

This is awesome but has some downside to it.

Rory is in the Grand Prix yet he's still fighting Mousasi.


Koreshkov vs Lima is the 1st fight of Tournament. Those guys are 2 of the better guys and have fought twice already. Great fight but would've been better to meet later in the tourney.

Wonder who the 10th person will be?

MVP will actually have to fight legit competition. I'm eager to see how that goes.

Bellator's Welterweight division is very good. I like that they're not throwing in any gimme opponents to try and manipulate the finals. Everyone involved is a stud, including multiple young prospects. We'll get to see how this division stacks up when this is over. We'll also get a better idea of how good these young guys actually are. I'm excited to see how it unfolds

Yeah I just heard that too. So Daley is our 10th fighter of the tourney. That's a great fight and rivalry. Good thing they are fighting 1st because imo neither will make the finals with Rory, Koreshkov, Lima, Ruth. This will be interesting to see how it plays out.

With PFL's cool Regular Season and Playoff system they are using and this Tourney we have some good mma coming our way throughout the rest of the year.

I just read that every fight in the GP is 5 rounds and that every fight Rory is in he will be defending his belt.....wow that's pretty interesting.
