CHICAGO, Ill. (March 24, 2011) - Bellator Fighting Championships will make its first visit to Arizona with Bellator 41 on April 16, 2011 at Cocopah Resort and Casino in Yuma, Arizona. The event will air LIVE on MTV2.

Bellator 41 will be headlined by two Super Fights, with current Bellator World Featherweight Champion and self proclaimed "Baddest Man on the Planet" Joe Warren taking on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and WEC veteran Marcos "Louro" Galvao, while Bellator World Bantamweight Champion Zack Makovsky is set to square off against 11-0 Strikeforce alum Chad "Robo" Robichaux.

Along with the two non-title Super Fights, Bellator 41 will also host the semifinal matchups of the promotions Season 4 Featherweight Tournament.

Coming off an impressive decision victory over the previously undefeated Nazareno Malegarie in the quarterfinals, Daniel Straus looks to punch his ticket to the finals with a victory over hard-hitting Kenny "The Tooth Fairy" Foster, who earned his spot with a submission victory over NCAA Division I Wrestling Champion Eric Larkin.

The other semifinal fight will see 7-time Bellator veteran and World Jiu-Jitsu Champion Wilson Reis battle heavy handed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Patricio Pitbull in a fight to secure a coveted Featherweight Finals appearance.

"As an MMA fan, I can't wait for this event," said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney. "Both Super Fights and Semi-finals should be spectacular fights. And, Cocopah Casino's outdoor venue is an amazing venue for MMA. We've wanted to bring an event to Arizona for some time. Overall, this should be a great live event on MTV2."
