By FCF Staff
Bellator has released the complete line-up for the promotion’s April 4th event, which will go down at the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada. Bellator 115 will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Vitaly Minakov and Cheick Kongo, and will also feature semifinal bouts in its welterweight and middleweight tourney.
In the welterweight semi Andrey Koreshkov will battle Sam Oropeza, and at 185, Dan Cramer will fight Jeremy Kimball.
Cramer was initially set to fight Doug Marshall, however, the Nevada Commission recently extended a suspension the fighter was handed by Pennsylvania officials last year. Marshall tested positive for an undisclosed, banned substance following his loss to middleweight champ Alexander Shlemenko in November.
