On December 7, Bellator Fighting Championships will return to New Jersey for the finals of the promotion’s season seven lightweight tournament. Bellator’s last venture to Ceasars saw the promotion kick off its seventh season with a bang as the welterweight tournament quarterfinals took place, a night which saw the cross-the-river fighter Lyman Good take home a unanimous decision victory, in the evening’s main event, against Jim Wallhead.
Also booked to return on the bill is women’s flyweight sensation Jessica Eye (8-1), who is riding a five-fight win-streak. “Evil” Eye was last seen in the Bellator cage this passed April, taking a lopsided unanimous decision over Anita Rodriguez. The Strong Style Fight Team product most recently took to Rock N Rumble in August, outpointing Angela Magana.
The event will broadcast at 8 p.m. EST on MTV2 and in commercial-free HD on EPIX. The preliminary card will streamed on Spike.com starting at 6 p.m. EST.
