    ....................................BELLATOR199......................................

    Bellator Fighting Championships return to it's hometown base of San Jose California Saturday May 12, 2018,
    for it's final heavyweight quarterfinal bout in the Heavyweight Tournament Grand Prix, which will determine who will be Bellator's next Heavyweight champion.

    Headlined by Mohammed "King Mo" Lawal vs. Ryan "Darth" Bader for the coveted final quarterfinal spot, Bellator 199 promises to deliver fireworks on it's final card before the promotion's highly anticipated Bellator 200 landmark event from London England, where all 4 Heavyweight semi-finalists will likely be displayed, along with dates for their respective upcoming bouts

    "King Mo" is no stranger to the Heavyweight tournament format, having won Rizin Fighting Championships Inaugural Heavyweight Tournament Championship NYE 2015 at Japan's infamous Saitama Super Arena,
    in stunning fashion.







    King Mo's opponent is no stranger to accolades, being Bellator's current Light -Heavyweight Champion.
    Ryan "Darth" Bader last defended his belt in dominant fashion over Bellator's highly regarded Light Heavyweight Veteran Linton Vassell, (whose last defeat came at the hands of....you guessed it, King Mo,
    at Bellators Inaugural DYNAMITE show 2 1/2 years ago).






    Many have been wondering, what if someone gets hurt?
    Where are the alternates?
    And for that, Bellator has veteran Cheick Kongo looking to re-establish himself against the extremely tough Javy Ayala for a possible alternate spot.
    Cheick has been on a statistical tear, currently riding a 5-fight win streak, which includes a unanimous decision over current UFC HW Title contenderAlexander Volkov , and Cheick's last loss came against, again, you guessed it, King Mo.
    It will be interesting to see if he can win his way to a rematch.

    To do that, he has to get by Javy.
    Javy, who lost out on an initial tournament spot, being edged out in a decision byRoy "Big Country" Nelson at Bellator 183, made fame by first knocking out former Bellator HeavyweightThiago Santos, then welcoming famed Heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov to Bellator with a stunning 16-second highlight-reel knockout, *the fastest in Bellator history*.
    At just 29, the Hunt'esque Ayala looks for another big name to add to his resume, and a hopeful slot as an alternate and "true" Heavyweight in the tournament.





    Scott Coker's last HW tournament was the legendary Strikeforce Heavyweight Tournament, in which the newcomer Daniel Cormierpeppered Jeff Monson in an alternate bout, and eventually went on to win the tournament as an "injured" Alistair Overeemleft a spot vacant.
    Just goes to show you, in a tournament, especially at Heavyweight, ANYTHING can happen.





    Also on the card, mainstay veteran and knockout artists Paul "Semtex" Daleywelcomes fellow veteran Jon Fitch to Bellator who comes in from WSOF/PFL riding a 4-fight win streak.
    "Semtex" is coming off an impressive KO victory at Bellator 183 overLorenz Larkin.

    And young superstar Aaron Pico looks to make another impression on Bellator audiences after back-to-back stunning KO victories, as he faces veteran Lee "The American Bulldog" Morrison, who's looking to put Okanogan country on the map with a win to add to his already consecutive 4.

    Rounding out the main card, Adam Piccolotti looks to return to his winning ways against the undefeated Carrington "Jet Setter" Banks.
    After starting off his professional MMA career 9-0 (his ninth victory over the always tough Brandon Girtz), Piccolotti experienced consecutive losses to Goiti Yamauchi and Dave Rickels, respectively.

    No one steals my thunder @Wild@Wild

    Glory 53 is on the same day and is better than these mma cards. I think it's much sooner though.

    I'll tune in for Pico and to see if Daley lands a left before Fitch Fitches him.

    Banks by lnp, Kongo by lnp, Bader by jab and jog.

    so you think that Bellator undercard is better than the UFC 224 undercard?

    without using the internet to cheat, name some fighters that any of these guys (or gals) have fought.

    Gaston Bolanos vs Malcolm Hill
    Hugo Lujan vs J.J. Okanovich
    Janay Harding vs Amber Leibrock
    Ahmed White vs Deron Winn
    Danasabe Mohammed vs James Terry
    Brandon Hester vs Jordan Williams
    Mark Climaco vs Daniel Oseguera
    Hyder Amil vs Elias Anderson
    Nohelin Hernandez vs Josh San Diego
    Tom Oswald vs Dominic Sumner
    Cass Bell vs Khai Wu
    Adam Antolin vs Josh Paiva
    David Rivera-Cruz vs Justin Tenedora
    Mark Aragoni vs Ignacio Ortiz

    I don’t know any of them but I’ll watch it to get to know them, while switching over to UFC 224 prelims. I will definitely be tuning into the Bellator main card though to see pico, Daley, and the main.

    WOW! Bader almost missed weight and needed the towel. Was anyone else checking to make sure he didn't pull a DC?

    Thats actually a good question. I can't think of anyone in any of the big organizations ever missing the heavyweight limit.

    I think that is one violation that would never hold up a fight

    very of them are low body fat at that weight and I could see 5 lbs being a whatever(with exceptions)

    Makes Open weight tourneys and matches so wild...Hong man had to be like 340 of muscle at one time
