Bellator adds Marlon Sandro, Adam Schindler to “Summer Series” tournament

Bellator Fighter Championships has furthered deepened an impressive pool of participants in their upcoming featherweight tournament with the additions of former SRC 145-pound champion Marlon Sandro and 9-1 Adam Schindler to the field. Lightweight tournament finalist Pat Curran and British phenom Ronnie Mann have already been confirmed for the special three-show offering between seasons starting on June 25 with Bellator 46.

News of the group’s growth was revealed in an official press release from Bellator.

Sandro will be making his promotional debut in the tournament after signing with Bellator in February. Though the 34-year old Brazilian is coming off a decision loss to Hatsu Hioki on New Year’s Eve, Sandro had gone 17-1 prior to the performance with three straight knockouts and ten of his total wins coming as the result of a finish.

His “Summer Series” peer, Schindler, is 1-0 under the Bellator banner after outpointing opponent Brian Melancon at Bellator 20. Since then he has won a pair of fights including an opening round tap-out of Kierre Gooch at “Strikeforce: Houston” this past August. The showing marked the sixth submission in Schindler’s career.

    i know i said it in the last Bellator post but seriously, they are sowing up the lighter weight classes from under the noses of the UFC, its fucking hilarious. who ever is working for the UFC signing fighters needs shooting for letting these guys get away. well chuffed for Bellator, Sandro is fucking awesome to watch, though i thought UFC had actually already signed him, or was that Hioki they got?

    Can’t wait to see Sandro in action in the States-Even with BFC getting a lot of the lighter weight fighters-I still would have to say that the UFC has the best at every weight
