Tonight, Bellator FC returns with some Welterweight action in their seventh season. The season premier, Bellator 74, features the quarterfinal round of their 170 lb. tournament. The winner will collect $100K and go on to face funky wrestler Ben Askren. Askren has stood atop the Welterweight division for two years now and it will take a special talent to dethrone him.
