Bellator reveals welterweight tournament bracket, including Michael Page vs. Paul Daley

The bracket for Bellator’s upcoming welterweight grand prix has been revealed, paving the way for the tournament to start later this year.

Bellator officials announced the opening-round matchups today on Instagram, which included Paul Daley, whose participation had been rumored but also was in flux while he worked out contract issues.

On one side of the bracket, former champions Andrey Koreshkov (20-2 MMA, 11-2 BMMA) and Douglas Lima (29-7 MMA, 11-3 BMMA) will meet Sept. 29 at Bellator 206. The winner of that fight will take on the winner of Daley (40-16-2 MMA, 6-3 BMMA) vs. Michael Page (13-0 MMA, 9-0 BMMA), a long-discussed grudge match that appears finally will come to fruition. A date for that bout has not been revealed.
