by MMAWeekly.com Staff A featherweight tilt between Wilson Reis and Deividas Taurosevicius is on tap for Bellator 33 on Oct. 21 in Philadelphia. MMAWeekly.com sources close to the fighters said the fight is a done deal and will air on the televised portion of the fight card.

Reis (10-2) is one of Bellator’s original signees. He has twice made it to the semifinal round of the promotion’s featherweight tournament, only to come up short on both tries. He last fought in the Season 2 tournament earlier this year, losing to Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.

Taurosevicius (12-4) is coming off of a loss in his three-fight stint with World Extreme Cagefighting. Following decision wins over Javier Vazquez and Mackens Semerzier the Lithuanian dropped a majority decision to L.C. Davis before moving on to Bellator.

The bout will lend support to the Bellator 33 main event battle between current lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and former UFC star Roger Huerta.
