    Main event:
    Koreshkov vs McDonough
    Co main:
    Brett cooper vs Brandon Hasley.

    Cooper vs Hasley seems much more bareable knowing Koreshkov vs McDonough is on right after.

    Hopefully this card includes the start of a 4 man BW tourney or the LHW semi's.

    Don't forget Held vs Pitbull still needs to be added to a card as well

    Pitbull/Curran
    LHW tournament fights

    this card should have LHW semis

    Final card of the summer will have LHW finals, maybe Pitbull/Held depending on when Pitbull is healthy and maybe they can top it off with a title fight.

    What title though? LHW has no contender, HW in the fall Bjorn said, MW no contender, WW no contender, LW will be on PPV, FW happen in June, BW not till fall when Dantas is hurt.

    So yeah guess no title fight on that Aug card.

    Slong mentioned Brooks vs Jensen interim title fight, that could always headline a card.

    Yeah, that's what I want to see happen, if Eddie won't be ready to fight for a few months or more. Then the problem of Jansen being sidelined for an egregious period would be solved, and I think that would make a stylistically good, and more than marketable enough main event "title" fight for a summer series card.

    Otherwise, the Pitbull-Curran winner could have a quick turnaround and fight Straus in August, if 1 polishes off the other quickly or easily enough. Then Bellator would be working toward solving the fw backlog too.

    Really looking forward to Koreshkov/McDonough.

    McDonough has had a break out tournament.

    This card will most likely have the LHW semis. Mcgeary vs. Lins/Beltran is a solid fight. Wouldn't be surprised if they started a 4 man tourney at BW on this card. Maybe even an 8 man that starts at 121.

    If they have an open Main Card spot on one of their Summer cards it would be smart to throw MVP on there. Especially after all the noise and attention he attracted after the PPV. Would easily give the viewership a bump.

    If they do an August card, they should start one of next seasons tourneys a little early. Maybe WW.

    I believe Bjorn said the Pitbull/Held fight is happening in the Fall. With LW backed up there is no need to rush it (especially since they were able to get Held a fight in between)

    Only if they do Chandler/Eddie which is crazy if they do that then I guess but that is such a clusterfuck if they do it.

    real champ wont fight the interim champ but is instead fighting a guy who just lost two in a row while the interim champ is fighting another guy who was promised a real title shot.

    Dont see Pitbull/Curran turning around in two months, more likely they fight in sept on one of the first few fall season cards.

    I can also see them not even doing an Aug event like they did last summer I believe. Just hold off the LHW finals for one of the first summer cards in Sept.
