After a solid showing six months back as part of the Bellator Summer Series, British featherweight Ronnie Mann has been scheduled for a return to the ring come March when the organization’s sixth season starts up on MTV2/EPIX. More specifically, the 25-year old “Kid Ninja” will participate as part of a Season 6 tournament with the end goal of earning a $100,000 payday and shot at the divisional title.
News of Mann’s addition to the 145-pound field was recently revealed by Bellator officials.
Mann was last seen choking Kenny Foster out in the opening round of an October bout at Bellator 53. The fight marked his first performance since coming up short on the scorecards against eventual Summer Series winner (and current top contender) Pat Curran. Mann holds an overall record of 21-4-1 with eleven submission victories to his credit.
He will join WEC veteran Wagnney Fabiano as a member of the eight-man group with six other featherweights likely to be announced in the coming weeks. Bellator Season 6 starts on March 2 and is slated to feature four other tournaments (bantamweight, lightweight, welterweight, and middleweight).
