Former UFC fighter Cheick Kongo will challenge Vitaly Minakov for the Bellator heavyweight title on April 4 at Bellator 115.
Officials announced the entire fight card recently. The event goes down from Nevada’s Reno Events Center, with the main card airing on Spike TV.
Along with Minakov-Kongo, one middleweight tournament semifinal will take place, as Dan Cramer goes up against Jeremy Kimball. Originally, Doug Marshall was suppose to face Cramer, but he was denied his fight license by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
A welterweight tourney semifinal between Andrey Koreshkov and Sam Oropeza occupies the co-main slot.
