Eddie Alvarez-Patricky Pitbull, Featherweight Tourney Set For Bellator 76

An intriguing lightweight contest will serve as the main event for Bellator 76, which takes place October 12 from Caesars Windsor in Canada. Former Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez will face Patricky Pitbull in what could be his final bout for the promotion.

“Eddie and Pitbull are two of the most explosive, dynamic lightweights in MMA,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said. “This is a fight I’ve wanted to see for the last two years.”

Also, the season seven featherweight tournament will see four quarterfinals take to the cage, as Rad Martinez meets Nazareno Malegarie; Akop Stepanyan faces Wagnney Fabiano; Mike Richman battles Jeremy Spoon; and Shabulat Shamhalaev faces Cody Bollinger.

The eight featherweights sport a combined record of 106-15. They will be competing for a $100,000 and a future Bellator featherweight title shot.
