Bellator MMA will be returning to the WinStar World Casino on November 8th for Bellator 107, and the main card on Spike TV will feature the finals in this season’s heavyweight, bantamweight, and middleweight tournaments.
Bellator made the fight card lineup official on Wednesday afternoon.
“We’ve now got three huge Bellator Tournament Finals featured on an incredibly deep card November 8th from WinStar World Casino, this is going to be an awesome night of fights on Spike,” Bellator CEO & Chairman Bjorn Rebney said.
The heavyweight tournament final between Cheick Kongo and Peter Graham will headline the card. Graham is an injury replacement for Vinicius Spartan, who had to pull out of the fight due to an injury.
“I want to fight the best in Bellator so I can be the best,” Kongo said. “When I try to do things as a competitor, I want to be the best. I messed up before because I wasn’t focused like I’ve been from the beginning. But, now … I will be the best. It’s my time. I came to Bellator for the opportunity to show the best Cheick Kongo. And that’s it.”
The co-main event will be the final in the season nine bantamweight tournament as Joe Warren meets Travis Marx. If Warren is able to get the victory, he will become only the second fighter in Bellator history to win a tournament in two different weight classes.
“The Baddest Man on the Planet is back,” Warren said. “I’m one win away from getting back to exactly where I want to be, fighting for that belt. This is what I work for, this is what I train for, and nothing is going to get in the way of that.”
The middleweight tournament final will also take place on the main card as Brennan Ward meets Mikkel Parlo. The winner of the fight will be next in line for a title shot as season eight tournament winner Doug Marshall will challenge Alexander Shlemenko the following week at Bellator 108.
“I am super amped up to fight Parlo in the finals,” Ward said. “I feel like there is no way he can beat me. I am always looking to finish and that is the only way to go. Go big or go home!”
