MMA and boxing will both be featured on Spike TV on August 26, as Benson Henderson-Patricio “Pitbull” Freire headlines Bellator 160.
According to a report by the LA Times, the two will meet at lightweight from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Along with that bout, Robert Guerrero meets David Peralta under the Premier Boxing Champions banner the same night.
Henderson (23-6) lost in his first appearance with Bellator earlier this year to Andrey Koreshkov for the welterweight title. He is a former lightweight champion in the UFC and also held gold in the WEC at 155 pounds.
Freire (25-3) will be moving up from featherweight for the contest.
