On Friday, Oct. 6, Bellator MMA will host its 184th event from the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla.
In the night’s main event, the promotion’s bantamweight champion, Eduardo Dantas, looks to defend his title against Darrion Caldwell. The Brazilian Dantas recaptured the 135-pound belt with a decision win over Marcos Galvão last June and since defended it against Joe Warren and Leandro Higo in hard-fought battles. The decorated wrestler Caldwell opened his career with eight straight victories, but was upset by Joe Taimanglo last July. The pair rematched in December with Caldwell exacting revenge and earning a crack at gold.
Also on the card, former featherweight champions Daniel Straus and Pat Curran return to action against Emmanuel Sanchez and John Teixeira, respectively.
The action kicks off Friday with a live preliminary card stream above at 7 p.m. ET. The main card follows on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET.
The fighters hit the scales at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday. A live video feed (courtesy of Bellator MMA) appears above, while the results appear below.
