Bellator has announced the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming October 11th event in Wichita, Kansas, which will feature the semifinals of its next featherweight tournament. The card, which will be broadcast on SPIKE, will also see recent lightweight tourney winner David Rickels taking on J.J. Ambrose.

Rickels (14-2) scored wins over Lloyd Woodard, Jason Fischer and Saad Awad to win the Season Eight lightweight competition, but was quickly stopped by champion Michael Chandler in July.
