Oshiro and Danny Tims are the only confirmed fighters in the bantamweight tournament. Additional signings are expected to be announded in the coming days.

“Mark Oshiro is a great fighter for our upcoming 135 [pound] tournament,” stated Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney in the release. “He is a very talented striker who also has a great ground game. I look forward to seeing him fight in our tournament beginning in August.”

An opening-round date and venue for the 135-pound tournament have yet to be announced.
