Bellator’s “Summer Series” finale is set, with Bellator 73 featuring a featherweight title fight and two tournament finals on the main card. The August 24 card takes place live from Harrah’s Tunica Hotel and Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. The main event will pit Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran against Season 4 tournament winner Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.
The card will also feature the Season 6 bantamweight final between Marcos Galvao and Louis Nogueira. As well as the “Summer Series” light heavyweight final between Attila Vegh and Travis Wiuff.
The MTV 2 main card will be rounded out by what will likely be a Season 7 heavyweight tournament qualifier between talented prospect Ryan Martinez and former-UFC fighter Mike Wessel.
Also of note, Capoeira specialist Marcus “Lelo” Aureilo will make his debut on the Spike.com preliminary card.
