Bellator Fighting Championships is making its way to Chicago. They are putting on an event at the Aragon Ballroom on May 15th. Chicagoans know that the nickname for the Aragon is “The Brawlroom”, so perhaps it’s the perfect place to stage an MMA event.

We will have interviews with fighters Eddie Alvarez and Jorge Masvidal within the next day or so here at Chicago’s MMA, as well as more details and the full card.

Bellator Fighting Championships’ is in their premiere season. They are featuring 12 two-hour events broadcast Saturday nights on ESPN Deportes. The English-language broadcast is available on their website each Wednesday. The events feature both tournament and non-tournament bouts. There are four simultaneous tournaments taking place in season one over a three month period: one in each of the Featherweight (145 lb.), Lightweight (155 lb.), Welterweight (170 lb.) and Middleweight (185 lb.) divisions. Check out their fighter roster.
