Bellator to Host 135 Tourney; Tims in

By Mike Fridley Apr 30, 2010
Danny Tims has been announced as the first official participant in Bellator’s upcoming season three bantamweight tournament, the promotion confirmed on Friday. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney first referenced the 135-pound tournament on Thursday in Kansas City, Mo.

Tims (9-2-1) of Independence, Mo., earned his spot in the bracket with a hard-fought unanimous decision win against Brian Davidson at Bellator 16. Season three will debut on Aug. 12.

“Danny’s win over Brian Davidson included some great back-and-forth action; it was probably the night’s best all-around fight,” said Rebney in a press release. “With his win, Danny earned a spot in an eight-man field that already has some hugely talented bantamweights locked in. We will be announcing more of them in the coming weeks.”

While not televised live, the Tims-Davidson bout is up for view at Bellator.com.
