Josh Hill feels snubbed as Bellator bantamweight grand prix alternate: 'I want in that sh*t'

UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Just prior to Josh Hill 's fight Friday night, Bellator announced its tournament field for a bantamweight grand prix that will commence early next year. Excluded from the field of eight 135 pounders was Hill.
So what'd he do about that? He went out and delivered a thunderous one-punch knockout against Jared Scoggins at Bellator 272. Afterward, “Big” John McCarthy revealed that Hill will serve as a tournament alternate. In truth, Hill found out the day before, and he wasn't pleased.
“I found that sh*t out yesterday,” Hill told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at Mohegan Sun Arena. “Sitting down talking with Stots, and he told me. I was like, ‘Eh, we should do a 16-man tournament.' With Horiguchi coming back, it kind of pushed me out of the tournament. I'm the next guy, according to the rankings. So, that sucks. But I want in that sh*t. If anybody drops out or injuries, I'm the guy.”
