Bellator 76 PosterBellator returns to the Caesars Windsor in Canada on Oct. 12 for Bellator 76. Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez squares off with Patricky “Pitbull” Freire in the night’s main event with the Season 7 Featherweight Tournament quarterfinal bouts fleshing out the rest of the televised portion of the event.

After holding the Bellator lightweight title for over two years, Alvarez was submitted by reigning champion Michael Chandler. Alvarez quickly rebounded, earning a long awaited win over submission ace Shinya Aoki at Bellator 66. With momentum on his side, Alvarez is primed for an explosive showdown at Bellator 76.

“After hearing Bellator wanted to put this fight together, I really don’t think they could have made a better match-up for the fans to enjoy,” Alvarez said. “Pitbull has proven to be a legitimate threat in the past and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

For Pitbull, the explosive former Bellator lightweight tournament finalist is no stranger to the big finish, with knockout wins over veterans Rob McCullough, Toby Imada and Kurt Pellegrino. After suffering a small fracture to his left arm at the hands of Lloyd Woodard, Pitbull is ready to re-enter the Bellator cage and collect the biggest victory of his already impressive career.
