(Wilson Reis vs. Henry Martinez)
If you’re one of the proud, multi-lingual subscribers of ESPN Deportes, this is old news to you, but the second weekly installment of the Bellator Fighting Championships went down Friday night (and was broadcast on Saturday), with former EliteXC 140-pound champ Wilson Reis extending his record to 7-0 with a decision win over Henry Martinez, and IFL/Ring of Combat vet Lyman Good scoring his eighth consecutive win after choking out Hector Urbina. Also on the card was Jorge Ortiz (aka "The Naked Man"), who scored a decision win over Aaron Romero. You can watch the entire broadcast (in English!) starting this Wednesday on Bellator.com.

Bellator’s staggered four-weight-class tournament system may seem confusing at first, but basically here’s what’s going to happen…
— Reis will next face Week 1 winner Joe Soto in the featherweight semi-finals; the other featherweight semi-final match will be contested between Yahir Reyes and Estevan Payan, who won their quarterfinal matches during Week 1.
— In the lightweight bracket, Eric Reynolds will next take on tournament favorite Eddie Alvarez, who scored a first-round submission victory over Greg Loughran during Week 1; the other lightweight semi-final match will be contested between Week 1 winners Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal and Toby Imada.
— In the welterweight bracket, Lyman Good and Jorge Ortiz will be getting it on in the semi-finals. The other 170-pound semi-final will be held between Omar de la Cruz and the winner of next week’s quarterfinal bout between former UFC middleweight champ Dave Menne and Norman Paraisy.
