Bellator 70 Fight Card: Minnesota's Cole Konrad To Defend Championship In Main Event

The Bellator Heavyweight World Championship is on the line on Friday night in New Orleans, as Minnesota's own heavyweight Cole Konrad will headline a stacked Bellator 70 fight card.

Konrad, who is 8-0 as a mixed martial artist, will face off against 7-1 Eric Prindle in the night's main event for the heavyweight belt. Konrad won a pair of NCAA titles as a wrestler with the Minnesota Golden Gophers, and finished his college career with a 155-13 record. He submitted Neil Grove to win the inaugural Bellator Heavyweight Tournament back in October of 2010, but Friday night will mark his first title defense.

The broadcast will get underway at 6:00pm CST with a handful of top local prospects facing off on the undercard, and can be seen for free on Spike.com. The main card, which will air on MTV and HD on EPIX, will start one hour later at 7:00 pm CST. Here is the full fight card:
