Although not as well known as the UFC, Bellator Fighting Championships has become a premier mixed marital arts organization known for their exciting fights that almost always end in a spectacular finish.
With their fifth season—shown on MTV2 and Epix—swinging into full gear, Bellator has a host of amazing events scheduled for the rest of the autumn season.
Six events, starting with this weekend's Bellator 54 in Atlantic City, N.J., remain on the schedule including two title fights involving two of the promotion's biggest stars.
As season five chugs along, the finals for Bellator's bantamweight and heavyweight tournaments are also expected to be resolved by the end of fall, tentatively scheduled for Bellator 59, which coincidentally will be held in Atlantic City, as well.
With so many great fights on hand in the remaining months, here are five Bellator fights that MMA fans should not miss.
