Bellator will head to Texas next month for Bellator 143, the promotion announced recently.
Set for September 25 from the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas, the card features a main event between former champion Joe Warren and L.C. Davis.
Warren (12-4) is a former two-division titleholder, while Davis is coming off a victory over Hideo Tokoro that put him on the short list for “Fight of the Year.”
“Mixed martial arts has a rich history in the state of Texas and Bellator looks forward to returning to the Lone Star State for the first time since 2012 with a stacked card in tow,” Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said. “Joe Warren has been itching to get back in action and return to the 135-pound title chase, while L.C. Davis has momentum on his side since his ‘Fight of the Year’ caliber matchup against Hideo Tokoro in March. I’m truly looking forward to it.”
Also, Kendall Grove and Joey Beltran meet in the co-main event.
Below is the current card:
Bantamweight: Joe Warren vs. LC Davis
