Binns Management client and 215MMA's own Will Martinez advanced to the semi-finals of the $100K Bellator MMA Season 10 Featherweight tournament, back on February 28th. Martinez was slated as the huge underdog against top prospect Goiti Yamauchi (16-2). Martinez defeated him at Bellator MMA 110: Rampage vs. M'Pumbu via dominant Unanimous Decision. With Martinez advancing, he is now scheduled to fight again on March 28th at Bellator MMA 114: Shlemenko vs. Ward. Martinez will have his hands full once again when he takes on up and coming Featherweight Des "The Predator" Green (10-2). Bellator MMA 114 will air live on Spike TV and along with the Featherweight tournament semi-finals, will feature a main event pitting Bellator MMA Middleweight Champion Alexander Shlemenko (49-7) taking on number one contender Brennan Ward (9-1) for the Bellator Middleweight Championship.

215MMA fighter and Binns Management client Will Martinez had this to say about his upcoming fight at Bellator MMA 114:
"I'm coming to fight. This tournament format is hard, but I'm ready for March 28th. Des Green is a great fighter. I hope he is ready for 15 minutes of hell."
Desmond "The Predator" Green holds Professional MMA record of 10-2, and is 2-1 inside the Bellator MMA cage. Green has fought for many different organizations including Bellator MMA, PA Cage Fight, Gladius Fights, and even CFFC. Green has faced the likes of CES MMA standout Rob Font, Bellator MMA veteran Gemiyale "Baby Hercules" Adkins, and most recently defeated Mike "The Marine" Richman in the first round of the Season 10 Bellator MMA Featherweight $100K tournament. Green is known to have top notch wrestling and is a very explosive athlete, so this will be another tough fight for the Philly native Will Martinez. Whoever wins this bout will face the winner of Daniel Weichel/Matt Bessette on May 2nd, 2014 at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
