After Andreas Spang was deemed “unfit to fight” the day before Bellator 98, Brennan Ward was given the opportunity of a lifetime, taking his place in this year’s middleweight tournament. Ward made the most of his opportunity, stopping Justin Torrey in the second round via TKO to stake his claim in the semifinals. He’s now 3-1 under the Bellator banner, with all three wins coming by stoppages (2 KO/TKO, 1 Submission).
Joe Pacheco fills in as a late replacement for Perry Filkins in the semifinals of season nine’s middleweight tournament. Pacheco is undefeated in his young mixed martial arts career with a perfect 6-0 record. He’s 2-0 under the Bellator banner with stoppage victories over Kyle Bold and Pierry Pierre.
