On Friday, July 22, Bellator MMA hosted its 159th event from the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kan.

In the night’s main event, undefeated bantamweight Darrion Caldwell looked to continue his march towards the title when he took 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 entered the contest having won three straight. Sixteen of his 22 career wins had come before the final bell.

The co-main event featured hometown favorite David “Caveman” Rickels against UFC and WSOF veteran Melvin Guillard.
