The Bellator Season 6 Bantamweight Tournament final is now slated to take place at Bellator 73 on August 24. The location of the third installment of the Bellator Summer Series has yet to be determined.
In the finals, a pair of Brazilians in Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira will meet to determine who will get the next title shot against Eduardo Dantas.
Galvao (12-5-1) looked stellar in his Season 6 run, defeating Ed West and Travis Marx en route to the finals. The Nova Uniao fighter, who has found himself on the short end of some very contentious decisions, finally saw things go the right way, making it to the finals in hopes of getting a title shot.
Nogueira (14-2) proved to be an unlikely success story in season 6, knocking off former finalist Alexis Vila and Japanese veteran Hiroshi Nakamura after being eliminated in the first round of the last 135 lb. tournament.
