Bellator has announced that the welterweight finals for the promotion’s “Fight Master” program will take place November 2nd, during its “Rampage” vs. Ortiz” event. The fight will be part of the event’s preliminary card, which will be broadcast on SPIKE. The main card will mark Bellator’s first PPV.
Riggs (39-14) and Bronzoulis (15-5-1) were scheduled to fight September 7th, at Bellator 98, but Riggs was unable to compete due to a reported eye injury. The UFC vet Riggs worked his way to the competition’s final under the guidance of Greg Jackson, while Brounzoulis was coached by Randy Couture.
