Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Exclusive: Bellator to Return to Casino Rama in Ontario May 4

(Bellator: Now with twice as much maple syrup and back bacon.)

Canadian MMA fans will get a double-dose of Bellator Fighting Championships in back-to-back months this Spring. has learned that the Chicago-based promotion has secured May 4 for its second Ontario event of 2012 and that the show will take place at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario. As we announced last week, BFC will also be holding an April 6 event in Windsor.

The May show will be the third held at the native-run casino. Both Bellator 47 and 57 took place at the venue.

Known for giving local fighters a shot at competing on a bigger stage, it’s likely that Bellator will include several up-and-coming mixed martial artists from the Greater Toronto Area and its surrounding municipalities to the card, which will no doubt feature some of its other contracted Canadian talent like Cory MacDonald, Ryan Ford and Nordine Taleb. The event will be rounded out by match-ups from the season 6 bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight, welterweight and middleweight tournaments which get underway March 9 at Bellator 60.

We’ll have more news on the fight card as it becomes available.

bootystar Says - that's right.
Have you ever looked at how well Bellator fighters rank out of all world promotions. I think in MW, the UFC only really has 36 spots in the best 100 fighters list at Fight Matrix.

Cory MacDonald is a beast, or so I've heard.
