CHICAGO, IL. (September 20, 2010) - Bellator Fighting Championships announced today that it will host an open tryout in the City of Brotherly Love which will provide a once-in-a-lifetime chance for an undiscovered professional fighter to earn spot in one of the organization's upcoming area events.

The tryout will take place at the famed Daddis Fight Camps in downtown Philadelphia on Saturday, October 2nd with registration beginning at 12:30 P.M. EST and tryouts starting at 1:30 P.M. EST. In addition to eligible aspiring fighters, the tryouts are open to media and the public.

"Philadelphia is a hotbed for MMA talent so holding a tryout before our October 21st event seemed like the right time and the right place," said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney. "We have discovered some great talents in our past tryouts, including Tyler Stinson, Bryan Goldsby, and James Krause, who all went on to compete in the Bellator Tournament."

Daddis Fight Camps is located at 1719 Washington Avenue in Philadelphia. Striking and grappling will be included in the tryout, and will be judged by industry insiders including Bellator Matchmaker Sam Caplan, gym owner Brad Daddis, and Philadelphia native and Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez.

Fighters are asked to bring their own equipment, as well as their federal I.D. Fighters currently signed by another promotion are not eligible to try out.

Bellator will host its first event in Philadelphia with Bellator 33, taking place at the Liacouras Center on October 21st. Tickets for the event are on sale NOW at ComcastTix.com: http://comcasttix.com/events/page/east/Liacouras+Center/Bellator+33+-+Alvarez+vs.+Huerta/
