Bellator 142 "Dynamite" will hold simultaneous mixed martial arts and kickboxing bouts during the preliminary bill as part of a 20-bout card.
The California-based organization revealed the complete lineup for the Sept. 19 event on Friday. Bellator 142 takes place at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and will feature a Bellator MMA cage and Glory kickboxing ring inside the venue. Sixteen of the matchups are MMA, while four are Glory.
Four fights, three MMA and one kickboxing, are slated to occur at roughly the same time: Jose Palacios vs. TJ Arcengal (Glory) at lightweight; Victor Jones vs. David Blanco (Bellator) at featherweight; Brandon Hester vs. DeMarco Villalona (Bellator) at middleweight; and Gloria Telles vs. Alysia Cortez (Bellator) in a flyweight amateur clash. Depending on how quickly they end, the three MMA bouts will overlap with the kickboxing matchup.
The evening’s main card is expected to feature eight main card bouts -- five Bellator and three Glory -- and airs on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. The prelims will air on Spike.com immediately prior beginning at approximately 6:30 p.m. ET.
Bellator 142 is headlined by a light heavyweight title tilt between Liam McGeary and Tito Ortiz and also includes a four-man 205-pound tournament. The featured Glory fight pits Saulo Cavalari against Zack Mwekassa for the vacant light heavyweight title.
