Bellator 87 has been officially announced by the promotion, and they put together a solid night of lightweight tournament action for the fans in Mount Pleasant, Michigan at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort. Set to kick off on January 31, the card will feature quarter final tournament fights between Lloyd Woodard-David Rickels, Patricky Freire-Guillaume DeLorenzi, and Thiago Michel-Alexander Sarnavskiy.

“Our first event at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort was a tremendous success, so we made it a point to get back to Michigan as quickly as we could,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. “This Lightweight Tournament live on Spike is stacked with some of the sport’s most exciting finishers, so I expect another night of great fights and a packed arena.”

Woodard is primed  to back in the Bellator cage after some wins outside the promotion, stating, “All I can say is the mountain man from Montana is going to come to Michigan and show this “Caveman” a mountain man ass whooping. Fighting on Spike is going to be an incredible experience, and I just can’t wait to get back into that Bellator cage, and make a run through this tournament.”

If all goes according to plans for Rickels, you won’t see him getting bullied around in the cage anytime soon.  “This is just nasty matchup that’s going to be a war,” Rickels said. “Cupcake is a guy that likes to throw down, and come right at you, and like you saw in my fight against Amoussou, I don’t get intimidated by anyone, and certainly not by a guy named Cupcake.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now and are available at StarTickets.com, Bellator.com and The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort Box Office. The event will broadcast LIVE January 31, starting at 10:00 PM EST on Spike, as well as in Spanish on mun2. The preliminary card will be streamed LIVE and FREE on Spike.com starting at 8:00 PM EST.
