Chris Horodecki at WEC 49

Bellator Fighting Championships on Wednesday added a lightweight tilt to its Bellator 47 fight card scheduled for July 23 at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada.

Ontario native and WEC veteran Chris Horodecki takes on Chris Saunders. Both are making their Bellator debuts.

The promotion also announced the local feature fights that round out the Bellator 47 event, which also features the semifinal round of the promotion’s first Summer Series featherweight tournament.

Pat Curran takes on Ronnie Mann in one half of the tournament bracket, while the other half features Marlon Sandro vs. Nazareno Malegarie after the four won their quarterfinal bouts at Bellator 46. The winners will then square off in the final bout of the tournament at Bellator 48 on Aug. 20 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.
