For Jiu-Jitsu and MMA fans, Saturday night isn’t just about Shogun and Jon Jones. The 37th installment of Bellator FC will feature Wilson Reis (11w, 2l) against Zac George, and the winner remains in the running in the promotion’s featherweight tournament.
The fight, to be held in Concho, Oklahoma, will be broadcast starting 7 pm local time on MTV2, a channel that has entered a partnership with Bellator to broadcast events.

Besides the broadcast to MTV’s young viewership, another interesting hand Bellator is playing is hiring sambo ace Blagoy Ivanov, the Bulgarian who beat Fedor Emelianenko in the style in Russia.
Undefeated in MMA with three wins (one by submission), Ivanov has however been submitted by Jiu-Jitsu’s own Alexandre Souza, at the 2010 World Pro, in Abu Dhabi.
