    Bellator 93 heads to Maine with welterweight-tourney final, Marcus Davis | News



    Bellator 93 is set for March 21 at Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine, officials today announced.

    The event will feature the final of the organization's Season 8 welterweight tournament, which features a final four of Douglas Lima, Ben Saunders, Brent Weedman and Raul Amaya.

    Additionally, the event features UFC veteran Marcus Davis (21-9 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and kickboxing champion Michael Page (3-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC), whose opponents haven't been determined.

    The welterweight tournament's semifinal-round pairings include Lima (23-5 MMA, 5-1 BFC) vs. Weedman (21-8-1 MMA, 7-3 BFC) and Saunders (15-5-2 MMA, 6-2 BFC) vs. Amaya (11-1 MMA, 2-1 BFC). The winners then meet at Bellator 93, and the tournament champion earns $100,000 in total pay and a guaranteed title shot.

    Davis, meanwhile, makes his Bellator debut on the strength of a 4-1 run. Most recently he picked up a solid victory over former UFC fighter David Bielkheden, which followed a split-decision defeat to Chuck O'Neil. Davis, a Maine native and former pro boxer, picked up wins over the likes of Chris Lytle, Pete Spratt and Jonathan Goulet during a 14-fight UFC career.

    Page also makes his promotional debut at the event. The British welterweight turned to MMA in 2012 after a long run in kickboxing. All three of his pro MMA bouts have ended in first-round stoppage wins.

    That's great! I love watching Davis fight. I'd rather see him back in the UFC but this'll do.

    Bellator are doing well with UFC vets .. They recently signed Tom DeBlass to a 3 fight deal too

    But I thought they weren't going to use people that have fought in the UFC to help them grow...I like this fight regardless but think Davis gets merced if it stays standing.

    Davis takes Page down and subs him, Page is great but the guys he's fought have all been short notice replacements and rookies.

    Page isn't even a top 5 UK welterweight. Guys like Cathal Pendred would destroy him.

    He was getting beat up pretty bad in the UFC. There's nothing wrong with a guy going to a smaller promotion to continue making money. Still, Saunders has had some really tough fights in Bellator.
