Bellator 123 or UFC Fight Night 50 or both...

Tomorrow night, the mixed martial arts world is in for an absolute treat. At 8pm on Spike TV, Bellator MMA is set to premiere a main card filled with popular fighters. In their season eleven premiere, current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Lashley is making his Bellator debut, and  Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal seem more than ready to step back into the cage after suffering a loss by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. In the co-main event, French MMA veteran Cheick Kongo will go against fellow striker Lavar Johnson. In the main event, the always dangerous, PatrĂ­cio Freire is looking to redeem himself in a rematch against the current Bellator Featherweight Champion, Pat Curran.

At 10pm, the UFC Fight Night 50 main card looks incredibly insane, which is obviously a great thing. Starting off the main card, lightweight submission specialist, Joe Lauzon will go against The Ultimate Fighter 15 winner, Michael Chiesa. Two heavy hitters who are both looking to make a statement in the heavyweight division, Derrick Lewis and Matt Mitrione, will trade blows in bout that I think will end with a knockout. In the co-main event, another heavyweight contest with feature knockout artists, Ben "Big Ben" Rothwell who will battle former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion, DREAM Heavyweight Champion, K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, Alistair Overeem. In the main event, two my favorite fighters who I've been following since the Strikeforce days, #7 light heavyweight Dutch fighter, Gegard Mousasi is scheduled to fight #4 Brazilian fighter Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

Now, lets not forget, UFC Fight Night 50's prelims will at three hours before their main card. Here is where things get difficulty. Since UFC prelims will conflict with Bellator MMA program, I will have to figure out which event I'm going watch. So I decided to create a schedule below to enjoy the most out of tomorrow night.

7-8pm EST- UFC Prelims
8-10pm EST - Bellator 123
10-12:30 EST - UFC Fight Night 50

Fight on!
