Bellator 74 Will Put Welterweight Tournament On Display

Bellator Fighting Championships returns to Atlantic City for Bellator 74 on September 28.

The promotion will begin the process of crowning a No. 1 contender in the welterweight division on the night, as Lyman Good and Jim Wallhead collide in the main event.

Good and Wallhead will be one of four quarterfinal round bouts in the season seven welterweight tournament that comprise the main card.

Nordine Taleb takes on Marius Zaromskis, Tim Welch faces Michail Tsarev, and Andrey Koreshkov battles Jordan Smith in the other quarterfinals.

“Each quarterfinal pairing in our season seven welterweight tournament is basically a pick’em fight,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said.

Such notables as Phillip Nover, Kenny Foster and Jay Haas will also be competing on the prelims. MTV2 will air the main card live.
