Bellator to Host First Event in Canada on July 23

Just over two years into its existence, Bellator will make its first trip into Canada when it goes to Rama, Ontario to host Bellator 47 at Casino Rama.

The summer series event, which will take place on July 23, will feature featherweight champion Joe Warren defending his belt against Patricio "Pitbull" Freire.

According to Bellator, the event will also host the semifinals of the summer featherweight tournament. Among those in the field are Marlon Sandro, Ronnie Mann, and Pat Curran. The quarterfinals take place the month before, at Bellator 46.

To date, all Bellator events have taken place in the U.S., with Florida in the lead with six events hosted.

Casino Rama is located on reserve land about 90 miles north of Toronto, and has a 5,000-seat entertainment center that will play host to the event.
