Baker vs. Amoussou will headline Bellator 72 in July

The Bellator 72 event is set to take place on July 20th on the campus of The University of  South Florida’s Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.

The event will be headlined by the Season Six Bellator Welterweight Tournament Finals matchup between Bryan “The Beast” Baker and Karl “Psycho” Amoussou.

Also, the semifinals of the Summer Series Light Heavyweight Tournament between Waachiim Spiritwolf and Marius Zaromski will take place.

Amoussou spoke on the opportunity:

“This is the biggest fight of my career,” said Amoussou. “I’m going to win this tournament, and then I’m going to win the belt. I’m coming for Ben Askren.”

Amoussou had a very tough fight in his last matchup against David Rickels and took home the close decision win. He’ll need to be on his game when he locks horns with Bryan Baker. Baker spoke on the opportunity:

“I’m 100 percent focused on this fight and nothing else,” said Baker. “I want to make this a professional fight and just put on the best show possible for the fans. I know Karl is going to come out aggressive like always, and I don’t have much doubt this fight is going to end with a stoppage. I want this Tournament Championship more than anything, and I’m going to get it.”

Both fighters are vying for the opportunity to face Bellator Welterweight Champion Ben Askren later this year. Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, by visiting the Sun Dome Box Office and at all Ticketmaster outlets including Wal-Mart.
