Two more fights have been added to the Bellator 132 lineup, as Virgil Zwicker meets Houston Alexander and Fernando Gonzalez takes on Marius Zaromskis.
Set for Temecula, California and the Pechanga Resort Casino on January 16, the Spike TV main card will be headlined by featherweight champion Patricio “Pitbull” Freire facing Daniel Straus.
Freire (22-2) and Straus (23-5) will be joined by a previously announced fight between featherweights Bubba Jenkins and ex-World Series of Fighting champion Georgi Karakhanyan.
“Our first event of 2015 should be absolutely incredible,” Bellator president Scott Coker said. “We already had two fantastic fights on the lineup, including a world title fight, and now we’ve added a rematch between Virgil Zwicker and Houston Alexander that features some real intrigue after the incidents from their first meeting, as well as Fernando Gonzalez looking to beat his third-straight high-profile veteran in Marius Zaromskis, who is still one of the most devastating and creative strikers in the sport.”
Zwicker (12-4-1) has finished nine of his 12 fights, while Alexander (16-10-1) has 11 knockout wins to his credit.
Gonzalez (22-13) is a veteran of Strikeforce, WEC and King of the Cage, with wins over Karo Parisyan and Karl Amoussou to his credit. Zaromskis (20-8) has defeated the likes of Jason High and Nordine Taleb, and is a former DREAM champion and one-time Strikeforce title contender.

Bellator Featherweight Championship
Patricio “Pitbull” Freire (c) vs. Daniel Straus
