Bellator Fighting Championships is poised to crown a second Season 4 Tournament champion tomorrow night in Atlantic City when lightweights Patricky Freire and Michael Chandler duke it out for a six-figure paycheck and the right to face 155-pound title-holder Eddie Alvarez later this year. Both finalists, in addition to the fourteen other athletes scheduled to scrap at Bellator 44, stepped on the scale earlier today with the primary players all making weight.
Headlining Saturday night’s broadcast is a non-title battle between explosive Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard and Niko Vitale, a veteran of nearly forty fights under his belt with past wins over Dave Menne, Matt Lindland, and Yushin Okami. Vitale will enter the evening having emerged with his hands raised in three straight outings.
Fans can tune in to catch all the live Bellator 44 action tomorrow night on MTV2 starting at 9:00 PM EST.
