The eight season of Bellator MMA will continue tonight with Bellator 89 from the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina and will feature a title fight and the quarterfinals of the middleweight tournament.
The preliminary card will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Spike.com and the main card will begin at 10 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
In the main event tonight, teammates and friends will step into the cage and battle as Eduardo Dantas (14-3) will defend the Bellator bantamweight title for the first time as he takes on Marcos Galvao (13-5-1).
Both fighters are teammates at Nova Uniao, but they will forget about that when they step inside the Bellator cage tonight. Bellator and Spike TV have released a preview of the fight, which tells the story about the fighters and how this fight is a battle of teacher versus student.
