Theyre squaring off for the start of the Summer Series Featherweight Tournament, broadcast live from the Hard Rock by MTV2. A couple of Brazilian fighters renowned for their knockout specialties, a submission specialist from Britain, an Argentine with a 19-1 record, and a host of other men whom you wouldnt want to take on in a bar-fight are jumping in the ring. Florida native Josh Samman is up against a grizzled vet, Mike El Gringo Diablo Bernhard. Also competing are the no-less-terrifying women, with Jessica Jag Aguilar and Carla Esparza opening barrels of whoop-ass.
The Bellator 46 Fighting Championships is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets cost $25. Call 312-245-9805, or visit bellator.com.
