    More news keeps coming out about this fight card, the latest fighter added to the card is WEC vet Poppies Martinez

    so far the card is

    Koreshkov vs McDonough
    Cooper vs Halsey
    Vassell vs Zwicker
    Poppies vs ???

    Shaping up nicely. And we can assume the LHW semis are on this as well especially with liam having fought about 2 months beforehand

    I wish they would have shown his last fight.

    LHW semis will be on the card, dont know if they are doing an Aug card so LHW finals might be on the first show of the fall season in Sept.

    Also I thought Curran/Pitbull was rumored for this card.

    I can't believe Poppies is still around. He was a the biggest star of those old pre-Zuffa WEC shows at the Tachi Palace (they don't call him the Tachi kid for nothing), but has never been able to beat anyone above 'local jobber' level. His walk-ins were great, with the tribal dancers and drums and all that jazz.

    Bellator also has the second biggest draw of those old Tachi Palace shows in Doug Marshall. The Lemoore biker crowd fucking loved him. They should sign Olaf Alfonso while they are at it and get the complete set of old-school WEC heroes.

    Yep. The first time I saw him was that 10 second KO at WEC 6. Loved watching him fight.

    Will Bellator let him bring the Tachi tribe dancers for his 15 minute walkout?

    Why not? They let Caveman Rickells go out and act like a fool five times a year.

    They're not doing an August card. Start of Season 11 is September 5th and that card is Bellator 123 (July card is 122)..

    I believe Curran/Pitbull is going to be the main of 123. That's Bellator's current plan anyway. Pitbull/Curran headline, Irvin/Ward to open the card, and the start of the MW tourney is a solid card.

    They got him facing Bubba Jenkins. Solid matchmaking.
