Two fighters are the first confirmed participants for Bellator's upcoming season-six welterweight tournament.
Bellator officials today announced Carlos Alexandre Pereira (33-9-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) as an entrant in the eight-man tournament.
Additionally, as MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported, War Machine (12-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC) – perhaps best known as UFC fighter Jon Koppenhaver before a legal name change – also is part of the tournament field, officials today confirmed.
The tourney kicks off in March on MTV2. LINK
