VenueHorseshoe Casino
CityHammond, Indiana

Bellator 75 took place on October 5, 2012 at The Venue in the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana.[3] The event was distributed live in prime time by MTV2.

Background

Bellator 75 hosted the opening round in the Bellator Season Seven Heavyweight Tournament.[3]

The event featured the long-planned rematch between season-five heavyweight tournament finalists Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos. Prindle and Santos met in the finals of Bellator's season-five heavyweight tourney, but the bout was ruled a no-contest when Santos inexplicably kicked a downed Prindle in the groin.[6] The initial rematch was scheduled for Bellator 61. However, on March 15, Bellator announced the fight had been pushed back a week to Bellator 62 due to Prindle having "flu-like symptoms."[7] The following week Santos failed to make weight and the bout was cancelled, and Prindle was awarded the tournament win by default.[8] Incredibly, the fourth scheduled meeting of these two fighters again ended in controversy as this time Prindle accidentally kicked Santos in the groin in round one.
