Prepare for a long evening of MMA and kickboxing later this month at Bellator 142: Dynamite 1, as 20 fights in all will take place.

Set for the SAP Center in San Jose, California, the card goes down September 19 with Tito Ortiz challenging Liam McGeary for the light heavyweight title on Spike TV.

Also, Phil Davis, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, Emanuel Newton and Linton Vassell will compete in a one-night tournament to crown a No. 1 contender in the 205-pound division, while a new Glory light heavyweight champion will also be crowned.

Both a cage and a ring will be set up on the arena floor, and Bellator officials recently announced that fights will take place simultaneously in both during the early prelims.
