A clash featuring Tyler Stinson is on the roll-out at Bellator 26. While Stinson comes in, Rory Markham goes out.

The season-four welterweight-tourney qualifier is airing Thursday at the Kansas City Power & Light District in Missouri. This is where Markham (16-6 MMA, 0-0 BFC) gets disqualified for not obtaining medical clearance. The Miletech Martial Arts member said his extreme weight cut resulted in his fighting with a collapsed lung at UFC 95 where he lost.

Stinson (18-6 MMA, 1-1 BFC), on the other hand, earned a fighting contract after trying out at Bellator earlier this year. He also got in at a Bellator’s season-two welterweight-tourney qualifier, because Seam Pierson was forced to exit due to an injury. The Kansas City native dropped a submission win for now tourney runner-up Dan Hornbuckle. Despite Stinson’s loss, he still managed to impress the boss.
