Bellator 96 Lineup Finalized

Bellator 96 is set for this Wednesday as the lineup was finalized today with a five-fight main card that will air live on Spike TV beginning at 8PM ET. The billing will be preceded by an eight-fight preliminary card. The Wednesday show will serve as a lead-in for the show’s debuting reality show, Fight Master: Bellator MMA, which will air immediately following the conclusion of the action in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

The Bellator 96 lineup is a solid one for the promotion’s June 19 return trip to the WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
