Bellator 33 Lineup Finalized

By Joe Myers Oct 5, 2010
Bellator Fighting Championships on Monday added a featherweight bout pitting Wilson Reis (left) against Deividas Taurosevicius and the promotional debut of unbeaten welterweight prospect Rick Hawn to its Bellator 33 lineup on Oct. 21 at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia.

The matchups will play out underneath the non-title main event pairing Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez with UFC veteran Roger Huerta. In addition, Bellator 33 will feature a welterweight title fight between champion Lyman Good -- who will return from a 15-month layoff -- and Ben Askren, who won the promotion’s Season 2 welterweight tournament.

Reis, a former EliteXC featherweight champion, reached the semi-finals of Bellator’s 145-pound tournament on two separate occasions. Taurosevicius is a veteran of the International Fight League and World Extreme Cagefighting, where he won two of three bouts.

Hawn -- who represented the United States in the Olympics in judo -- is undefeated in eight professional mixed martial arts matches and will look to remain perfect against LeVon Maynard. A veteran of the Ultimate Warrior Challenge circuit, Maynard has lost two of his last three fights.
