Bellator 87

Mount Pleasant, Michigan

Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort


Will Brooks looked incredible on New Year’s Eve at DREAM 18, defeating leg-lock specialist Satoru Kitaoka in the second round via TKO. The win was his eighth consecutive victory to begin his young career, including seven win by stoppages (3 TKO, 4 Submission).

This will be Ricardo Tirloni’s third appearance in a Bellator tournament. In season six, he was ousted in the opening round by Rick Hawn, who earned a second round knockout. Tirloni advanced to the semifinals in season seven with a second round submission victory over Rene Nazare, but was eliminated by Dave Jansen after dropping a split decision at Bellator 81.
