For the first time in three years, Bellator returns to Ohio with women’s 115 pound champion Zoila Gurgel (11-4) and the states own Brian Rogers (9-4) slated to appear. Their opponents are unknown.
Gurgel is undefeated in Bellator, where she has won her last four fights. She last fought in March 2011 and has been out with an ACL injury since.
Officials told MMA Junkie that they hope to have her fight Jessica Eye (8-1) on the card, but are uncertain if it will be possible. Eye is on a five fight win streak, with her last fight taking place August 17 of this year.
Rogers is 2-2 for the promotion, coming off a loss earlier this year.
The semifinals of Bellator’s Season 7 welterweight tournament are also being looked at for the card.
Bellator 78 takes place October 16 from the Nutter Center.
