Bellator is back in New Jersey tonight with a number of fighters ready to do their own form of fist-pumping! Emanating from Atlantic City, Bellator 68 features a number of exciting affairs including two tournament bouts with one determining a top contender.
The show is headlined by a featherweight final between Marlon Sandro and Daniel Straus. The winner of their bout will earn the final chunk of a $100,000 payday with a victory as well as a shot at surging 145-pound champion Pat Curran.
Other bouts highlighting the card are a semifinal match-up between bantamweights Marcos Galvao-Travis Marx in addition to fights between familiar faces Seth Petruzelli-Carmelo Marrero and Marius Zaromskis-Waachim Spiritwolf.
As always, Five Ounce of Pain will be watching and reporting live results back to readers as they unfold in real time. Things kick off at 7:00 PM EST on Spike.com with main card clashes heading over to MTV 2 an hour later.
UPDATE: The fight between Petruzelli-Marrero has been pulled from the card. According to Petruzelli via Twitter, an athletic commission doctor “heard weezing and fluid in my lungs” and would not clear him.
