The Bellator Fighting Championships will return to Ohio on October 26th for Bellator 78 and the card will come from Wright State’s Nutter Center.

The fight card will feature the semifinals of the season seven welterweight tournament, Bellator women’s champion Zoila Gurgel and Brian Rogers.

Tickers for this event will go on sale tomorrow and will be available at the WSU Nutter Center Box Office,, all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling (800) 745-3000.

“From Bellator 5 in Dayton to Bellator 66 in Cleveland, the state of Ohio has been great to Bellator, so we’re excited to return to Ohio and visit the Nutter Center with Ohio favorites like Brian Rogers and Zoila Gurgel,” said Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney.

Bellator did not announce who Rogers and Gurgel’s opponents will be on the fight card and that announcement should be coming in the coming weeks. The semifinalist in the welterweight tournament will be decided next month when the quarterfinals take place at Bellator 74 in Atlantic City.
