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.
