Bellator on a Saturday and there’s absolutely no UFC on? Doesn’t even seem like an occurrence like this should take place in this universal timeline we all inhabit, but it is, and we’re going to be showing you all the prelim fights of Bellator 98 right here on MiddleEasy.
Tonight’s main event was supposed to feature a bout between Joe Warren and Nick Kirk, but yesterday it appeared that Joe Warren failed to take a medical test which ruled him ineligible to fight. I’m speculating that since Joe Warren told us he’s a card-carrying medical marijuana user, the issue may have been he thought he would be pre-screened for marijuana metabolites and then ineligible to compete. That’s just a theory, however, and as of this morning nothing has been confirmed.
We do get to see MiddleEasy Frate Traner Alexander Shelemenko take on Brett Cooper in a Bellator middleweight championship bout. Tonight also marks the opening round of the Bellator middleweight tournament, which features the .gif overlord himself, Brian Rogers. Aside from Anderson Silva, he’s the most .gifed fighter on MiddleEasy. Let’s hope he doesn’t let us down tonight.
We’re going to be showing you a total of six Bellator 98 prelim fights starting at 2:30 pm PST / 5:30 pm EST right here on MiddleEasy, so come back at the appropriate time to watch all the festivities.
