Liveblog: Bellator 33 Part 1
Bellator. From the Spanish word for "enchilada". Well, truly, Bellator 33 - which takes place at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia - will feature the whole enchilada of combat. Tonight, Philadelphia's favorite son Eddie Alvarez will square off against UFC vet Roger Huerta, while Bellator welterweight champ Lyman Good is set to defend his belt against Season 2 170-pound winner Ben Askren. It's a recipe for excitement, and due to Alvarez's and Good's overwhelming fan presence, it's a recipe for the kind of civil unrest not seen since the 1964 Philadelphia race riots if either man were to lose. So stay tuned for what promises to be the biggest and most electric East Coast show since Kimbo fought Ray Mercer at the Cage Fury Fighting Championship.
