Bellator’s Canadian Debut Set for July 23

By Mike Whitman Jun 2, 2011
It was touch and go for a while, but it appears that Bellator Fighting Championships will make its Canadian debut on July 23 with Bellator 47.

Sherdog.com on Thursday confirmed the news with sources close to the event. The promotion had made plans weeks ago to make Bellator 47 its first event on Canadian soil, but multiple undisclosed difficulties put that plan in serious doubt. However, Sherdog.com’s sources assert that those problems have been overcome, and the promotion is Canada-bound after all. It remains unknown which province will host the promotion on July 23.

Little is known about the event at this point, other than it will likely be headlined by a featherweight title bout between reigning champion Joe Warren and Season 4 tournament winner Patricio “Pitbull” Freire. The event will be the second effort in the promotion’s “Summer Series” trilogy and will air live on MTV2.
