Eric Marriott Completes Bellator's Featherweight Tournament Roster

Eric Marriott is set for the eighth and final spot in the Bellator season two featherweight tournament beginning in April.

Marriott is an up-and-comer riding a nine-fight win streak. The 23-year-old has been fighting at a rapid pace since beginning his career in April 2008. He took a total of 11 fights last year on regional cards.

Training out of Grindhouse in Summit, Mo., Marriott has compiled a 17-2 record.

"I've been working all my career to get signed by a big-time promotion like Bellator," Marriott said. "Bellator has gotten a lot of recognition over the past few months from the fans and from the fighters as well, and it's very well-deserved. It's a great organization for me because there's not a lot of politics. If you keep winning, you keep fighting, and I really like that."

The other seven 145-pound competitors vying for a title shot against Joe Soto are Georgi Karakhanyan, Joe Warren, Patricio Pitbull, Bao Quach, William Romero, Wilson Reis and Shad Lierley.

According to Bellator, matchups will be announced next week.
