Bellator 40 Fight Card finalized writes that the Bellator 40 Fight Card has been finalized. The event, which is set for Saturday night in Oklahoma, is now official with seven contests, including Ben Askren’s welterweight bout against Nick Thompson.

Bellator 40 is now complete with the announcement of seven match ups.

The promotion revealed the fight card earlier today, just one day prior to the April 9 event.

The main card, which will broadcast live on MTV2 features a welterweight non-title contest between champion Ben Askren and MMA veteran Nick Thompson. Also on the card, Jay Hieron takes on Brent Weedman in the semi-finals of this season’s 170 lb. tournament, while Michael Chandler and Lloyd Woodard compete in the semi-finals of the lightweight tournament. Four preliminary card bouts have also been added.

A featherweight bout between Ronnie Mann and Josh Arocho were originally expected to meet on the main card, but the former’s traveling issues forced the cancellation of the tilt.
