Bellator 74 kicks off Season 7 of Bellator Fighting Championships Friday night at Caesars Atlantic City in Atlantic City, N.J. MTV2 and Epix HD will air the main card, the opening round and quarterfinals of the welterweight tournament at 8 p.m. ET.

AT STAKE
Entry into the semifinals slated for Bellator's debut on Spike TV at the start of 2013.

THE HEADLINERS
Former Bellator Welterweight Champion Lyman Good (12-2) opposes veteran "Judo" Jim Wallhead (23-6)

THE LOCALS
Good is fighting out of New York City. Brooklyn resident Phillipe Nover, a finalist on Season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter, competes on the preliminary card against Derrick Kennington, training out of Kurt Pellegrino's academy in Belmar, N.J.

KEY STORYLINES
A victory from Good moves him a step closer to regaining the welterweight title he lost to current champ Ben Askren in 2010 ... if Wallhead, off wins over Frank Trigg and Joe Villasenor, can handle the step up in competition ... if Marius Zaromskis show the form that scored him a highlight-reel, head-kick knockout in Dream and a somersault KO of Bruno Carvalho last year ... if Nover can kick-start his career and take a big leap to realizing the potential he showed in making the Ultimate Finale in 2008.
