Good, Tsarev, Koreshkov, Zaromskis Cleared for Bellator 78 Welterweight Semifinals



All four Season 7 welterweight tournament semifinalists were given the green light at Thursday’s Bellator 78 weigh-ins.

Former Bellator champion Lyman Good (170.5) and Russian submission specialist Michail Tsarev (171) will square off in Friday night’s headliner from the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio, while unbeaten Andrey Koreshkov (170.5) faces Dream welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis (170.5) in the remaining semifinal bout.

The evening’s main draw airs on MTV2 and will also see former two-time middleweight tournament veteran Brian Rogers (185) lock horns with promotional newcomer Dominique Steele (184.5). Rounding out the televised card will be a featherweight confrontation pitting Season 6 tournament winner Daniel Straus (145.5) against UFC veteran Alvin Robinson (145).

Six bouts will be featured on the evening’s undercard, which streams live on Spike.com prior to the main draw telecast. Highlighting the preliminary proceedings is a non-title flyweight pairing between Bellator 115-pound queen Zoila Frausto Gurgel (123.5) and six-fight pro Casey Noland (125.5).
