The main card on MTV2 and EPIX2 will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will be headlined by former Bellator welterweight champion Lyman Good (12-2) meeting Jim Wallhead (23-6) in one of the quarterfinal bouts.

“Each quarterfinal pairing in our Season 7 Welterweight Tournament is basically a pick’em fight, with Lyman and Jim headlining what should be a fantastic night of fights,” said Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Atlantic City is a classic fight town and New Jersey is a hotbed for mixed martial arts, so our fans are in for a great night on September 28.”
