Bellator's 'Summer Series' returns with three four-man tournaments
(mmajunkie.com)
Bellator MMA will return this summer for another "Summer Series" of tournaments, but it will do so with a twist on its regular format. Instead of eight-fighter tournaments like it has done throughout its run, Bellator this summer will put on three four-man tourneys. The promotion announced the plans on Wednesday, though it has not yet announced dates, locations or participants in the tournament events, which will air on Spike TV. As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported, the tournaments will take place in the heavyweight, light heavyweight and bantamweight divisions.

(mmajunkie.com)
A broken hand has forced Douglas Lima (24-5 MMA, 6-1 BFC) out of his Season 8 welterweight tournament final with Ben Saunders (16-5-2 MMA, 7-2 BFC), Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney today announced. However, rather than plugging in a replacement, the organization simply will delay the fight a few months and host it as part of its annual Summer Series of events. An exact date hasn't been determined, a Bellator official today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). The fighters initially were slated to fight on March 21 at Bellator 93, which airs on Spike TV from Lewiston, Maine.
