Former Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas will meet Mike Richman in a bantamweight contest at Bellator 134 this coming March.
Set for March 27 from the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, the event features Joe Warren defending his bantamweight title – which he won from Dantas – against Marcos Galvao in the Spike TV main event.
Dantas (16-4) owns wins over Wilson Reis, Ed West and Zack Makovsky, while Richman (18-5) has posted a pair of quick finishes over Nam Phan and Ed West since moving to 135 pounds.
“Mike Richman was already a very durable and dangerous fighter when he was competing in our featherweight division,” Bellator MMA CEO Scott Coker said. “But since making the move down to the bantamweight division, he has looked absolutely unstoppable. Now Mike gets a chance to prove he’s a truly elite bantamweight, as he takes on former Bellator MMA world champion Eduardo Dantas, a man who is a consensus top-10 athlete capable of beating anyone in the weight class.”
