The tournament, which will get underway when Bellator’s third season kicks off in August, will crown the promotion’s first 135-pound champion.
“Danny’s win over Brian Davidson included some great back-and-forth action; it was probably the night’s best all-around fight,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said in a release. “With his win, Danny earned a spot in an eight-man field that already has some hugely talented bantamweights locked in. We will be announcing more of them in the coming weeks.”
While Tims’ victory did not air on the Fox Sports Net broadcast of Bellator 16, the fight can now be viewed at Bellator.com.
