To kick off a full weekend of MMA, Eddie Alvarez will try to avenge one of the three losses in his career as he takes on Shinya Aoki at Bellator 66 in Cleveland tonight. Aoki beat the former Bellator champ with a heel hook in 2008. To add to Alvarez's motivation, this is his first fight since losing to Michael Chandler in November.
They will be joined on the card by middleweight tournament semifinals, Brian Rogers vs. Andreas Spang and Maiquel Falcao vs. Vyacheslav Vasilevsky, and lightweight tournament semifinals Rick Hawn vs. Lloyd Woodard and Thiago Michel vs. Brent Weedman. Check out the fights on MTV2 at 8 p.m. ET
After that, tune to "The Ultimate Fighter" to see John Cofer from Team Faber take on Vinc Pichel from Team Cruz. That fight will air on FX at 10 p.m. ET, followed by the final installment of "Primetime."
