Kongo Vs. Graham For HW Final Plus Warren vs. Marx Headline Bellator 107
Newport Beach, CA. (October 30, 2013) â€“ The Toughest Tournament in Sports continues Friday, November 8th as Winstar World Casino plays host to the Bellator Heavyweight, Bantamweight and Middleweight Tournament Finals. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com or by visiting the Winstar World Casino Box Office. The event will broadcast live at 9 p.m ET/8 p.m. CT on Spike TV.
After punching his ticket to the tournament final with a devastating combination of strikes and knees for a TKO win over Mark Godbeer, Cheick Kongo will now face Australiaâ€™s own Peter Graham in the Heavyweight Tournament Finals after Vinicius Spartan suffered a knee injury during training. Graham picked up his first Bellator victory with a tournament qualifier victory over Eric Prindle at Bellator 104, and will now take his place in the Heavyweight Finals, one win away from battling for the Heavyweight title. With his sights on set on capturing his first tournament crown, Kongo will have to put a stop to Grahamâ€™s current eight-fight win streak.
â€œI want to fight the best in Bellator so I can be the best,â€ Kongo said. â€œWhen I try to do things as a competitor, I want to be the best. I messed up before because I wasn’t focused like I’ve been from the beginning. But, now â€¦ I will be the best. It’s my time. I came to Bellator for the opportunity to show the best Cheick Kongo. And that’s it.â€
On the road to become only the second fighter in Bellator history to win a tournament in two different weight classes, â€œThe Baddest Man on the Planetâ€ Joe Warren returns to the Bellator cage and will face MMA veteran Travis Marx the Bellator Bantamweight Tournament Final.
â€œThe Baddest Man on the Planet is back,â€ Warren said. â€œIâ€™m one win away from getting back to exactly where I want to be, fighting for that belt. This is what I work for, this is what I train for, and nothing is going to get in the way of that.â€
The night will also feature the Bellator Middleweight Tournament Final in a fight between Brennan Ward and Denmarkâ€™s own Mikkel Parlo. After finishing both of his opponents in the opening and semifinal rounds, Ward doesnâ€™t see his fight with Parlo ending any differently.
