More on the MMA fights in the P&L District

April 29 there are going to be nationally televised fights in the Power & Light District.

The first of four live Bellator Fighting Championships events in the Kansas City Live Block, where a circular cage will house the carnage, which will be broadcast on Fox Sports.

Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney tells The Pitch that

the Kansas City fights will either be the first four matches of

the welterweight (170 pounds) or middleweight (185 pounds) tournaments. Each tourney is win-or-go-home style with the survivor getting a shot at a championship.

Announcements on

ticket sales as well as the city-wide tryout for a chance to compete in

the tourneys, says Power & Light District spokesman Nick Benjamin.

The tryouts will be for experienced and licensed MMA fighters, Rebney

says. “We will choose one fighter who earn right to fight on that show.”
