As of last night’s Bellator 42 event, we now have all of the finals set for Bellator season 4. Jay Hieron looks for his 3rd fight in as many months after having just 5 fights over a three year span. Jay will take on unbeaten Olympic Judoka Rick Hawn May 7th at Bellator 43. Daniel Straus and Patricio “Pitbull” Freire combined wouldn’t weigh more than a hydrated Cole Konrad, and that has no bearing on the fact that they will be fighting each other at Bellator 45 for the chance to take on Joe Warren and the judges this summer. Patricio “Pitbull”s cleverly nicknamed brother Patricky “Pitbull” will be fighting undefeated Michael Chandler at Bellator 44 for a chance to admire Eddie Alvarez’s fade in the cage. Then finally inverted triangle wielding Richard Hale takes on Christian M’Pumbu to crown the first Bellator light heavyweight champion, conveniently also at Bellator 45.
This caps another incredible season for the Dreamcast of MMA with a great set of finals in store for us throughout the next month. Now peel the foil off a creme egg and check out what put Christian M’Pumbu into the light heavyweight finals, because what’s a Sunday without a Bellator highlight?
