Bellator Confirms Neil Grove vs. Zak Jensen for July 23rd

By FCF Staff

Bellator has confirmed another bout for its upcoming July 23rd event in Rama, Ontario, as heavyweight Neil Grove will face Zak Jensen at the promotion’s 47th event.

Grove (10-3-1) (pictured) hasn’t competed since October, when he was submitted by current Bellator heavyweight champ Cole Konrad in the finals of the promotion’s season three tournament. The British fighter scored wins over Eddie Sanchez and Alexey Oleinik to advance to the competition’s championship bout.

Jensen (10-6) is coming off a TKO win over Jason Ackerman last November, to end the Minnesota fighter’s three fight losing skid.

The July 23rd card will also feature the semi-finals of  Bellator’s Featherweight Summer Series, which will see Pat Curran take on  Ronnie “Kid Ninja” Mann and Marlon Sandro face Nazareno Malegarie.

The promotion announced yesterday that a lightweight tilt between WEC vet Chris Horodecki and Chris Saunders will headline the event.

Bellator 47 will be broadcast live on MTV 2.
