Before arriving in Chicago, Bellator Fighting Championships hits Dayton, OH on May 1, 2009 for the semi-finals of the lightweight tournament.  Veteran Jorge Masvidal is considered one of the favorites.  He talked to Chicago’s MMA about his chances, and he agrees with those picking him to take it all.

His next opponent is Toby Imada.  Many feel Masvidal is on a collision course with top ten ranked Eddie Alvarez for the championship.  Jorge has given thought to the possibility of facing Alvarez in the final, but he isn’t looking past the San Diego based Imada, nor does he care who’s facing him.

“I like to break people,” proclaims the American Top Team memeber.  “I break people’s will, let ’em know what’s up.”

Although he sounds rough and rugged, listen to the interview and you’ll discover he has a good sense of humor too.

After Dayton, Bellator is taking it’s show to Robstown, TX and then right here to Chicago with a date set for May 15, 2009 at the Aragon Ballroom.  That night will feature semi-final action from the middleweight tournament.
