Bellator is picking up steam ever since their deal with Spike TV and they will return with their ninth season in September once they finish up with their summer series.
The staple of the organization is their tournaments, which they hold every year. The winner of the tournament gets a title shot at their division's champion.
The champions in Bellator are Alexander Volkov (heavyweight), Attila Vegh (light heavyweight), Alexander Shlemenko (middleweight), Ben Askren (welterweight), Michael Chandler (lightweight), Pat Curran (featherweight) and Eduardo Dantas (bantamweight). Most of them currently have top contenders and will likely defend their belts in season nine.
Here are some potential tournaments we could see, excluding the bantamweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions, since they took place during the summer series.
