On Friday, Sept. 18, Bellator MMA and GLORY kickboxing will host the weigh-ins for the mega-event dubbed Dynamite. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 19, from the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and feature both a Bellator cage and a GLORY ring in the same arena.
In the night’s headlining affair, Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary will make the first defense of his title against former UFC champion Tito Ortiz. McGeary earned the belt in February with a unanimous decision win over Emanuel Newton. Ortiz, meanwhile will aim to continue his career resurgence in the Bellator cage by upsetting the Brit.
More gold will be on the line on the main card as the vacant GLORY light heavyweight belt is up for grabs between Brazil’s Saulo Cavalari and Congo native Zack Mwekassa. The pair met previously at GLORY 18 with Cavalari scoring a third-round, head kick knockout.
Also on deck will be a one-night, four-man light heavyweight tournament that features Phil Davis, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, Emanuel Newton and Linton Vassell.
The event kicks off Saturday with a preliminary card stream on Spike.com at 6:30 p.m. ET. The main card follows at 9 p.m ET on Spike.
The fighters hit the scales at 8 p.m. ET. Below is a live stream of the action (courtesy of Bellator MMA), while the results appear below.
