All the fighters competing in tomorrow night’s Bellator 33 event tipped the scales today in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bellator Fighting Championships’ Philly debut features a NON-TITLE lightweight bout between champ Eddie Alvarez and former UFC star Roger Huerta.
In his last trip to the cage, Alvarez put veteran Josh Neer to sleep with a nasty rear-naked choke during Bellator 17 in May.
“I’m not going to be happy unless I completely control and dominate Roger in this fight,” Alvarez stated. “It’s important for me to go in there and dominate this fight and prove that I’m one of the best lightweights in the world.”
Huerta is eager to return to action after suffering a shocking unanimous decision loss to Pat Curran in the semifinals of Bellator’s lightweight tournament.
Thursday’s show takes place inside the Liacouras Center and will air on Fox Sports Net.
