Just look at these two–like a couple of wild dogs you can’t keep apart.
With two bouts and two unsatisfying stoppages already under their belts, Waachiim Spiritwolf and Marius Zaromskis are slated to once more climb into a cage and go through the motions of fighting before a freak injury leaves the viewing audience with a massive case of blue balls.
The pair first locked horns at Strikeforce Challengers 12, where an inadvertent eyepoke just seconds into the fight left Spiritwolf unable to continue. The duo reloaded and clashed once more a few weeks back at Bellator 68, where cageside doctors would call a halt to the bout between the second and third frames due to a cut between Spiritwolf’s eyebrows.
With one ‘No Contest’ and one questionable tally in the win column for Zaromskis, Spiritwolf will have his chance to settle the score on July 20th at Bellator 72.
Oddly, Bellator’s sixth season came to an end before its Welterweight tournament did. Tourney finalists Bryan Baker and Karl Amoussou will get to settle their unfinished business alongside Spiritwolf and Zaromskis.
Baker earned his spot in the finals by notching a workmanlike decision over Carlos Alexandre Pereira and upsetting Ben Saunders on the scorecards. Amoussou choked out Chris Lozano in the opening round of the tournament and snuck past David Rickels with a decision in his following fight.
Bellator 72 will kick off the promotion’s “Summer Series” at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.
