Bellator 82 PosterAfter a pair of devastating knockout victories inside the Bellator cage, the Season 7 Welterweight Tournament Finals are set as Lyman “Cyborg” Good is ready to lock horns with the always dangerous Andrey Koreshkov at Bellator 82 on Nov. 30 from The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

The night will also feature a welterweight clash between Bellator veterans David “The Caveman” Rickels and Michigan’s own Jason “The Finisher” Fischer. For the former University of Central Michigan star, Fischer knows this is the biggest opportunity of his young career.

“I’ve been incredibly lucky to collect two huge victories with Bellator, so to get this opportunity to fight David Rickels in front of all my friends and family, it really is a dream come true,” said Fischer. “The University of Central Michigan is like a second home to me, so I’m counting the days until Nov. 30”

Two long-awaited Bellator debuts will also be featured at Bellator 82, as English Kickboxing Champion and internet sensation Michael Page will be in action, along with former U.S. Olympic wrestling qualifier Shawn Bunch, who is making his professional debut inside the Bellator cage.

“I’ve had my sights set on Bellator for a long time,” Bunch said. “While I’ve been training in MMA for over four years, I’ve never been able to fully focus on the sport with my wrestling obligations. After watching guys like Ben Askren and King Mo, guys I really look up to in this sport have success, I knew the time was right to make the move to Bellator.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now and are available at StarTickets.com, Bellator.com and The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort Box Office. Tickets are priced from $25-$60.

Bellator 82 will air LIVE on MTV2 and in commercial free HD on EPIX, as well in Spanish language on mun2. As always, the preliminary card will stream on Spike.com.
