Bellator has had shows in Midwestern states such as Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. You can now add Michigan to the list.
The promotion announced earlier today that Bellator 82 will be taking place on November 30 from The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
A main event for the card has been announced, with their welterweight tournament final featuring Season 1 tournament winner and former Bellator Welterweight Champion Lyman Good squaring off against the undefeated Andrey Koreshkov. The winner will receive a guaranteed welterweight title shot and $100,000 in total tournament winnings. The main card airs on MTV2 with the prelims airing on Spike.com.
Good, who won his first round fight with a unanimous decision victory over Jim Wallhead, advanced to the finals by knocking out Koreshkov's teammate Michail Tsarev at Bellator 78 last Friday.
Koreshkov posted a unanimous decision victory over Jordan Smith in the opening round of the tournament, then advanced to welterweight tournament finals with a first round knockout of Dream Welterweight Champion Marius Zaromskis this past weekend.
The card will also be featuring two highly touted prospects making their Bellator debuts—Internet sensation Michael Page and former U.S. Olympic wrestling qualifier Shawn Bunch. Opponents have not been announced for either fighter.
