Bellator Announces Remanding Welterweight Tourney Match-Ups

MMA Junkie Reports:

http://mmajunkie.com/news/18097/bellator-welterweight-tourney-kicks-off-at-bellator-14-and-bellator-15-matchups-set.mma

Pictured: Dan Hornbuckle

April 15

Ben Askren (3-0-0) vs Ryan Thomas (10-3-0)

April 22

Dan Hornbuckle (19-2-0) vs Sean Pierson (9-4-0)

Jacob McClintock (6-0-0) vs Jim Wallhead (18-5-0)

Steve Carl (9-1-0) vs Brett Cooper (10-5-0)

MF: Another exciting tournament bracket for the Bellator promotion. I believe Dan Hornbuckle is the favorite to win it, but Ben Askren and Jacob McClintock are two highly touted prospects in the welterweight division. Jim Wallhead is very tough as well. Really excited for these tournaments to start. If Bellator can keep putting exciting tournaments like these year after year, they will be around for a long time.
