On Friday, July 22, Bellator MMA will host its 159th event from the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kan.
In the night’s main event, undefeated bantamweight Darrion Caldwell looks to continue his march towards the title when he takes on veteran Joe Taimanglo. The 28-year-old Caldwell moved his record to 9-0 in March when he choked out former champion Joe Warren via rear-naked choke. Guam’s Taimanglo enters the contest having won three straight. Sixteen of his 22 career wins have come before the final bell.
The co-main event features hometown favorite David “Caveman” Rickels against UFC and WSOF veteran Melvin Guillard.
The action kicks on Friday at 6:45 p.m. ET with a live preliminary card stream. The night’s main card airs live on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
