Josh Thomson Set for Promotional Debut at Bellator 142

<p>Bellator will debut its recently signed lightweight Josh Thomson against Mike Bronzoulis at Bellator 142: Dynamite. The MMA/Kickboxing mashup between Bellator and Glory will feature a unique arena design with a cage and a kickboxing ring set side-by-side, and both promotions fielding a full lineup.</p> <p>The two men represent the harsh dichotomy of MMA, with Thomson being booted from the UFC after three straight losses, and Bronzoulis still riding the high of winning the Legacy FC Lightweight title. The meeting at Bellator 142 will act as vindication for Thomson, who fell to Tony Ferguson, Bobby Green, and Benson Henderson before the UFC passed on renewing his contract. Thomson, the former Strikeforce Lightweight champion, will look to recapture some of his former dominance that originally led him to the UFC and a premier that saw him victorious over Nate Diaz. A change of promotion and the spectacle of Dynamite might be exactly what he needs for motivation. At 36 years old, Thomson will be viewing this fight as redemption, reinvigoration, and a final push for a belt before time sits him down.</p> <p>Mike “The Greek” Bronzoulis, also 36, will look for this fight to elevate his profile and continue his impressive run of victories. Although his level of opposition wasn’t as great as Thomson’s in the UFC, he comes to the fight with a belt and the confidence of a streaking fighter.</p> <p>The Bellator 142: Dynamite card will also feature the Bellator Light Heavyweight Championship fight between Tito Ortiz and current belt holder Liam McGeary, the Glory Light Heavyweight Championship bout between Saulo Cavalari and Zack Mwekessa, and a round robin-style MMA tournament with Phil Davis, Muhammed Lawal, Linton Vassell, and Emanuel Newton.</p>
