With Bellator 76 taking place tomorrow night at the Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, it was time for the weigh-ins. All main card fighters made weight at the same venue as tomorrow night’s event. The main card will air on MTV2, while the preliminary will air on Spike.com.
The main event will be a lightweight clash between Eddie Alvarez – in what is expected to be his last fight with the promotion – and the always dangerous Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.
Also featuring on the card is this season’s featherweight tournament, which features a strong field of prospects and one high profile return to the cage. Rad Martinez, whose inspiring story was chronicled by ESPN, will face off with a very tough opponent in Nazereno Malegarie in his Bellator tournament debut. Wagnney Fabianno will be returning to the cage after a long layoff since losing to Joe Benavidez at WEC 52. The Brazilian will take on Armenian talent Akop Stepanyan in his North American debut.
Also making his North American debut will be talented Dagestani striker Shahbulat Shamhalaev, as he faces fellow prospect Cody Bollinger.
