Coker teased the idea numerous times but made it official at the Bellator 222 press conference. The featherweight GP will start in October and all first round fights will be shown on the same night. $1 million awaits the winner of the GP.

No contestants have been announced yet. It is also unclear if the current champion will compete. Patricio Freire will move up to lightweight to face Michael Chandler in a revenge title match for his brother, Patricky.
