Bellator 72 Heading To Tampa On July 20

The lightweight tournament finals in Bellator will take place July 20 from Tampa’s USF Sun Dome, as Bryan Baker takes on Karl Amoussou, the promotion announced recently.

Also, welterweights Waachiim Spiritwolf and Marius Zaromskis will take to the cage for a third meeting. The semifinals of the “Summer Series” light heavyweight event are also planned for that night.

Baker (18-3) has finished as a semifinalist and runner-up in the Bellator tournaments before, has won five of his past six matches. Amoussou (15-4-2) is 3-1 since joining Bellator.

“This is the biggest fight of my career,” said Amoussou, in a recent press release. “I’m going to win this tournament, and then I’m going to win the belt. I’m coming for Ben Askren.”

Tickets may be purchased through Ticketmaster. Pricing ranges from $30-$120.
