Bellator Fighting Championships’ seventh season will begin Sept. 28 at Caesars Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., the promotion announced Monday.

Bellator 74 will feature the opening round of the company’s latest welterweight tournament, which is set to include former 170-pound titleholder and first-season tournament winner Lyman Good. No other participants have been confirmed for the eight-man field, the winner of which will earn a title shot at the Bellator belt currently held by unbeaten wrestler Ben Askren.

New York native and tri-state favorite Good, 27, has gone 2-1 since losing his belt to Askren in a five-round October 2010 decision. After being eliminated from the Season 4 welterweight tournament by Rick Hawn, Good returned 12 months later and needed only 13 seconds to knock out LeVon Maynard in their April encounter.

The event’s preliminary card will stream live on Spike.com at 7 p.m. ET, with the main card airing live on MTV2 and Epix HD at 8 p.m. ET.
