On Nov. 2, Bellator will be airing their heavyweight and featherweight tournament semi-finals on MTV 2. The prelim and post TV fights include one of the top heavyweight fighters in the northern California region Josh Appelt (7-2). He is set to fight Ed Carpenter (5-3), but Appelt was originally scheduled to fight in the UFC feeder organization Tachi Palace Fights against Freddie Aquitania of Team Alpha Male. That in itself was an accomplishment for Appelt, but the move to Bellator has him that much more motivated to continue his winning ways.
"Tachi (Palace) would have been a big show, but now Bellator is an even bigger show," MMAGOLD sponsored Appelt told SR (www.srmma.com). "Now I just want to perform at the peak of my abilities and give it everything I got."

"I think it's just been that I put on great shows for the fans, I'm not a boring heavyweight," Appelt told SR (www.srmma.com). "I can't really tell you what I'm going to do, but if the knockout's there I'm going to take it."
