About Grand Prix

Bellator MMA Featherweight World Grand Prix starts at Bellator 226 which takes place on September 7, 2019 at SAP Center in San Jose, California, United States.

16 top Bellator’s featherweights, including the current champion, will fight for the 145-pound championship and a one million dollar grand prize.

Opening round bouts, excluding the title contest between Patricio Freire and Juan Archuleta, will consist of three rounds. From the quarterfinals on, every fight will be scheduled for 5 rounds.

Following the completion of the opening round, the competitors still remaining in the grand prix will be paired with opponents via random drawing.

Each time an athlete enters a tournament bout as champion, the Bellator featherweight title will be on the line.

Besides, a tournament alternate contest will be decided upon following the conclusion of the opening round, with the winner available to fill in due to any unforeseen circumstances where a prior winner is unable to compete.
