Tim Welch Takes the National Stage Tonight at Bellator

Montana’s own Tim Welch hopes to make a statement as he enters the Bellator cage Friday night.

Welch (9-3) last fought this past March, getting a kneebar submission at ICF 5 in Great Falls. He follows in the footsteps of teammate Lloyd Woodard in entering the national scene in Bellator; but has a hard task ahead of him in Russian sensation Michail Tsarev (23-2).

Welch is the underdog coming in, but a victory will send him into the semi-finals of the Bellator $100,000 welterweight tournament.

Both himself and Tsarev both weighed in at 170.8 pounds Thursday at weigh-ins.

The event will imminent from Atlantic City, NJ Friday Night and will air on MTV2  at 6 p.m. mountain time.
