Bellator MMA had made five announcements of upcoming cards for its 10th season, but had left off one date – until now.
The promotion will open its season with Bellator 110 on Spike TV at Mohegan Sun in Uncassville, Conn., on Feb. 28 with a four-man light-heavyweight tournament featuring Quinton Jackson (33-11 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) vs. Christian M’Pumbu (18-5-1 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) and Muhammed Lawal (11-3 MMA, 3-2 BMMA) vs. Mikhail Zayats (22-7 MMA, 3-1 BMMA). The card also will feature the opening round of the Season 10 featherweight tournament.
“I’m very excited to do my first tournament in years,” Jackson said. “Bellator has the toughest tournament on the planet, and that’s how you know you’re really the champion. I’m here to show the world I’m back, healthy and motivated. It’s very bad for everybody at 205 in this tournament. I’m going to win this tournament by everybody going to sleep.”
