Newport Beach, CA. (August 29, 2013) - The Bellator Featherweight tournament continues Friday, October 11th from the Kansas Star Arena, located just south of Wichita, KS. The night will also feature Bellator Season 8 Lightweight Tournament winner David "The Caveman" Rickels live on Spike TV, along with some of Kansas's top-talent.

Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased at or by visiting the Kanas Star Arena Box Office. The event will broadcast live starting at 8 p.m. CST on Spike TV.

Rickels is anxious to get back into the cage to face Southern California's J.J. Ambrose in front of his home town faithful after suffering defeat at the hands of Bellator Lightweight Champion Michael Chandler. The always exciting Rickels has his sights set on ending the fight early, and is looking to get himself back in the win column with a victory on October 11th.

Wichita's own Jeimeson Saudino will return to the Bellator cage and fight Jesse Thorton, while fellow Kansas native, Marcio Navarro will look to make his mark under the bright lights and will face Donnie Bell in a lightweight affair.
