Bellator officials announced earlier today that they will be hosting open tryouts on Tuesday, May 4th in Somerville, Massachusetts (near the Boston area). The tryouts will serve as a search for talent for Season 3 of the Bellator Fighting Championships.
The tryouts will start at 1:00 p.m. ET and will take place at the legendary Sityodtong Academy at 100 Broadway in Somerville, Massachusetts. All fighters from all different weight classes are free to attend, including both male and female fighters.
Bellator 17 will take place just two days after the tryouts, on May 6th, at the Wang Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts.
“New England is a hotbed for MMA talent, so we jumped at the chance to host another tryout in Boston while we will be in town for Bellator 17.”, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said in the press release. “At our last two tryouts in Kansas City and South Florida, we discovered some great talents including Tyler Stinson and Bryan Goldsby. As the first major MMA promotion to come to Massachusetts, we’re in a very advantageous position to find some great unsigned fighters.”
The winner of Bellator’s open tryouts will get an opportunity to fight later this fall as a part of the undercard featuring local fighters. Also, Bellator Is scouting for talented fighters to be a part of their third season.
