Bellator 26 Finalized With Eight Bouts

Bellator 26 is set for Thursday evening at the Kansas City Power & Lights District in Kansas City, Missouri with an eight-fight card.

The promotion announced the official match ups earlier today.

The main card features three tournament bouts, including a heavyweight tournament first round bout between Mike Hayes and Alexey Oleinik, a bantamweight first rounder between Jose Vega and Danny Tims, and a 115-pound female tournament opener between Aisling Daly and Lisa Ward. The final bout on the main card will be a welterweight contest between UFC veteran Rory Markham and Steve Carl.

The event will also include a four-fight preliminary card that will precede the live broadcast of the main card on Fox Sports Net. The undercard features mostly regional talent from the area, including Rudy Bears vs. Zak Cummings.
