Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Bellator MMA will return to Atlantic City’s Revel on Friday, November 15th live on Spike TV as Point Pleasant’s own Kurt “Batman” Pellegrino will return after nearly two years away from the cage as he takes on Saul “The Spider” Almeida in a lightweight affair. Fan favorite and Ricardo Almeida disciple Tom DeBlass will also return to the Bellator cage. The night will also feature the Bellator Tournament Finals in the Welterweight and Featherweight divisions, as well as stacked preliminary card.

“I’ve been in retirement for the last two years, but I’ve been in the gym every day since and the competitive fire has still been burning inside of me,” Pellegrino said. “Every morning I wake up I realize I had the same dream as the night before, and it’s to go out the way I want. With Bellator back in Atlantic City, this is my opportunity to end my nightmare and go out the way I want, the way I deserve.”

The Main Card will broadcast live starting at 9 p.m. EST on Spike. The preliminary card will be streamed live and free on Spike.com.
