With the UFC taking a week off between last Saturday’s UFC 139 event and The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale on Dec. 3, Bellator takes the spotlight tonight with Bellator 59, which airs on MTV2 at 9pm ET and features a bantamweight tournament final between Alexis Vila and Eduardo Dantas and heavyweight final between Thiago Santos and Eric Prindle.
The main card also includes a pair of lightweight bouts, as UFC veteran Kurt Pellegrino returns to MMA against Patricky Pitbull and TUF 8 runner-up Phillipe Nover faces Marcin Held.
All of the Bellator 59 fighters successfully weighed in on Friday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, which also hosts tonight’s event.
