Middleweight tournament final...
MMA Junkie reports that after their wins at Bellator 102 last night, Mikkel Parol (11-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) and Brennan Ward (8-1 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) will fight in the season 9 middleweight tournament final at Bellator 107, with the winner getting a title shot against Alexander Shlemenko. The event takes place at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma on November 8. The main card will air on Spike TV after preliminary fights on Spike.com.
Parlo defeated Brian Rogers in the quarterfinals and then Jason Butcher last night, both by decision. His only career loss was a decision to Sultan Aliev in the season 8 tournament's opening round.
Ward defeated Justin Torrey in the quarterfinals by TKO and Joe Pacheco last night by submission. He has been undefeated since a 15-second submission loss to Aaron Johnson at Bellator 89.
Shlemenko, meanwhile, is coming off a successful title defense against Brett Cooper, his 11th straight win.
