CHICAGO, Ill. (July 14, 2011) - Bellator Fighting Championships confirmed today a heavyweight special feature fight between Bellator Season 3 Heavyweight Tournament Finalist Neil "Goliath" Grove and the heavy handed Zak Jensen at Bellator 47 LIVE on MTV2 July 23rd at 9PM EST.

Grove stormed through the Bellator Season 3 Heavyweight Tournament, collecting first round knockout victories against Eddie Sanchez and Alexey Oleinik before suffering a submission loss to reigning Bellator Heavyweight World Champion Cole "The Polar Bear" Konrad. Bellator 47 will mark Grove's first fight with Bellator since his Heavyweight Finals fight at Bellator 32.

"Neil had a great showing during our Season 3 Heavyweight Tournament, so it's great seeing him back inside the Bellator cage," said Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney.

When Jensen steps into the cage at Bellator 47, it will be the Minnesota natives first time fighting under the Bellator banner. Jensen is coming off a knockout win in November and has collected finishes in all 10 of his victories.

Bellator 47 will air LIVE on MTV2 on July 23rd, and will also feature the Bellator Featherweight Summer Series Semifinal fights, including Pat Curran vs. Ronnie "Kid Ninja" Mann, and Marlon Sandro vs. Nazareno Malegarie.
