MMA Junkie Reports:

Wilson Reis

– 11-2-0 MMA/ 4-2 Bellator Record

– Won 4 of last 5 Fights

– Notable Wins: Shad Lierley, Abel Cullum, Bryan Caraway


Yesterday Bellator officials announced Wilson Reis as the fifth participant in season four’s featherweight tournament. Reis joins Eric Larkin, Zac George, Kenny Foster, Georgi Karakhanyan, and Daniel Straus, who have already been confirmed in the field.

This will be Wilson Reis’ third attempt at winning a Bellator tournament. He made it to the semifinals the first two tries, but lost to eventual champion Joe Soto in season one and Patricio Freire in season three. Reis defeated WEC-veteran Deividas Taurosevicious by split decision in a non-tournament bout last October to earn another chance in this season’s featherweight tournament field.

Patricio “Pitbull” Freire and Nazareno Malegarie are expected to named as remaining entrants in to the tournament, but no official word has been of yet.
