Quote:
The second of Bellator's three "Summer Series" events is slated for July 20 when Bellator 72 heads to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla.

Officials today announced the event will feature the season-six lightweight-tournament finale between Bryan Baker (18-3 MMA, 8-2 BFC) and Karl Amoussou (15-4-2 MMA, 3-1 BFC).

Additionally, welterweights Waachiim Spiritwolf (9-10-1 MMA, 0-1 BFC) and Marius Zaromskis (17-6 MMA, 1-0 BFC) meet for a third time following controversial endings to their first two fights.

Bellator 72, which also will include the semifinals of the organization's eight-man "Summer Series" light-heavyweight tournament, features an MTV2-televised main card following prelims on Spike.com.

Baker, who posted semifinal and runner-up finishes in two previous middleweight tournaments, looks for an elusive tourney championship at welterweight. He advanced to the latest finale with a split-decision victory over Carlos Alexandre Pereira and a unanimous-decision win over Ben Saunders. He's now 5-1 over his past six fights.

Amoussou, a DREAM and Strikeforce vet, punched his ticket to the tourney finale with victories over Chris Lozano (submission) and David Rickels (split decision). He's won three straight fights, all under the Bellator banner.

Spirtwolf and Zaromskis, meanwhile, square off again after a spirited Bellator 68 bout ended in disappointment. Despite a late surge that had his opponent in trouble, the fight was stopped after two rounds because of a cut near Spiritwolf's eye. The duo's first meeting came in late 2010 under the Strikeforce banner, where the fight was declared a no-contest when Spiritwolf suffered a deep eyepoke just six seconds into fight.

Zaromskis has won three straight fights while Spiritwold is stuck in a 1-5 skid.

Does anyone actually care to see Spiritwolf / Zaromskis III??
Spiritwolfs record is 9-10-1 (1) and has losses to Shamar Bailey and a bunch of other no names.

Zaromskis has at least some name value, and a title and should be fighting better guys

Is Zaromskis going to be in the next welterweight tournament cause he's doing any good otherwise. He needs to be working at a title shot. Actually a fight between him and Ben Askren would be great.

Zaromskis was possibly on the verge of losing to Spiritwolf in their previous fight, which was exciting, so I don't know how anyone could quibble about Bellator making this match.

I really doubt Zaromskis will be in the next tourney. He's exciting, but just not that good, and BFC's WW division is super deep at this point. They could hold two tourneys at their prior standard if need be. Zaromskis is where he belongs as an entertaining feature fighter.

This is going to be a loaded event. Amoussou/Baker, 2 LHW semis, Zaromskis/Spiritwolf III, Beast Boy/TBA (might be Sparks), Ben Saunders/Rudy Bears, Raul Amaya/TBA (might be Foster), Radley Martinez/TBA (possibly Jason Carapelucci), etc. I think they're filling it up because of they'll be holding this event in their biggest venue ever and if prospective tourney fighters want work or inclusion then July will be the last chance for most.

So if he's not going to be in a tournament what's the point of signing him? Also if he's not that good then how did he win the Dream title? Then again that was Fighting Entertainment Group.

That's overseas. It's proven to be a different ballgame in North America for fighters and Zaromskis is one of the better examples of that. He arguably should be 0-4 Stateside, with losses to Diaz, Mein, Cyborg, and Spiritwolf. Santiago also had a very poor track record in the States relative to overseas, even before his two UFC stints.

So what was Santiago's placing in the Strikeforce middleweight Grand Prix then?
