Bellator 75 Wiki

Bellator LXXV is expected to host the opening round in the Bellator Season Seven Heavyweight Tournament. Announced participants include Eric Prindle, Thiago Santos, Brett Rogers, and Ruslan Magomedov. The event will feature the long-planned rematch between season-five heavyweight tournament finalists Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos. Prindle and Santos met in the finals of Bellator's season-five heavyweight tourney, but the bout was ruled a no-contest when Santos inexplicably kicked a downed Prindle in the groin.The initial rematch was scheduled for Bellator 61. However, on March 15, Bellator announced the fight had been pushed back a week to Bellator 62 due to Prindle having "flu-like symptoms." The following week Santos failed to make weight and the bout was cancelled, and Prindle was awarded the tournament win by default.

 

Magomedov was expected to face Brett Rogers in the quarter finals at Bellator 75.. However, Magomedov was forced out of the bout with a visa problems and replaced by Alexander Volkov.
