He is coming back, Kurt “Batman” Pellegrino (16-7) will be making his return to the Bellator cage. After retiring twice, “Batman” will fight for a second time under the Bellator MMA banner. In November of 2011 Kurt Pellegrino made his Bellator debut against Patricky “Pitbull” Freire. Pellegrino came up short and although it was a controversial call,Pellegrino suffered his first TKO lost. In the post-fight press conference, Pellegrino announced his retirement, stating he did not want to miss anymore of his children’s life. After awhile, Pellegrino was supposed to fight Marcin Held at one time, but injury sidelined him. Pellegrino’s student, Derrick Kennington ended up getting the opportunity to fight held and later lost to the Polish fighter.  The time has come for the New Jersey native to look for one more victory at Bellator 107 in Atlantic City New Jersey on November 15th. Pellegrino will meet Saul Almeida (12-4). Almeida has a lot of fights under his belt, but has not fought the same competition as the former UFC lightweight.

Also joining the card will be Tom Deblass (8-2). Deblass was successful in his Bellator debut back in April at Bellator 95: Curran vs. Shamhalaev when he defeated Carlos Brooks. An opponent has not yet been found for Deblass. The finals of the season 9 featherweight and welterweight tournament will most likely also be featured on the card. The event will be held at the REVEL casino’s Ovation Hall.
