Bellator 75 will return to Hammond, Indiana for the quarterfinals of their heavyweight tournament. The card will take place Friday October 5 live from the The Venue at Horseshoe Casino. The event will be headlined by what should have been last year’s heavyweight final, with Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos facing off in the main event. Tickets went on sale today for the October event.
The card will also feature Brett “The Grim” Rogers returning to the Bellator cage against top Russian prospect Ruslan Magomedov. Rogers made a successful Bellator debut against former friend and teammate Kevin Asplund at Bellator 71. Magomedov is another well rounded fighter coming from the recent influx of Russian talent and has an 8-1 record.
Anchoring the undercard will be former WEC bantamweight champion Chase Beebe. Beebe has gone 3-0-1 since losing to Season 6 bantamweight tournament finalist Marcos Galvao in the Season 5 quarterfinal.
