Bellator’s seventh-season heavyweight tournament field is now nearly complete, as Ron Sparks will meet Mark Godbeer on Oct. 5 at Bellator 75.

Sherdog.com confirmed the booking Tuesday with a source close to the fighters. Three of four heavyweight tournament quarterfinal pairings are now known, as bouts pitting Eric Prindle against Thiago Santos and Brett Rogers against Ruslan Magomedov were previously announced. Bellator 75 takes place at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind.

Sparks, 37, suffered the first loss of his career in his most recent outing, falling by knockout to Eric Prindle in the Season 5 tournament semifinals last October. Prior to that setback, “The Monster” had won eight consecutive bouts, culminating with a first-round knockout of Mark Holata in the fifth-season quarterfinals at Bellator 52.

Like his opponent, 28-year-old Godbeer (Pictured) has tasted defeat just once as a professional, stumbling last November against countryman Anthony Taylor. The Brit rebounded from the loss on March 24 by stopping Catalin Zmarandescu at BAMMA 9. Godbeer has finished all eight of his career victims by either knockout or submission and has yet to see a third round in his three years as a pro.
