Bellator’s ever-changing schedule received a few new fights this week along with a new show altogether. This week’s Bellator Roundup will discuss the latest fights that have been set for “Bellator London,” along with other news.

Three Fights Join Bellator’s Return To London

Bellator’s return to the SSE Arena in London, England now has more fights scheduled for it. The event, which is set to be the promotion’s first time in England in over two years, was given three new matchups this week.

Appearing for the first time since losing a title bout, Denise Kielholtz will meet Kana Watanabe at flyweight. Kielholtz had a four-fight winning streak snapped in July 2021 when she lost a split decision to undefeated champion Juliana Velasquez.

Watanabe will be fighting to bounce back from her sole pro loss, which she took against Liz Carmouche in June 2021.

Veteran Daniel Weichel will compete on the card, facing Robert Whiteford in a featherweight bout. Weichel is coming off a loss against Pedro Carvalho from November.

After a successful pro debut in November, Lee Hammond will make his first Bellator appearance when facing fellow undefeated prospect Jamie Hay.

Along with the new matchups, it was revealed Tuesday by veteran Paul Daley that he will have his retirement bout on the card. His opponent is unknown at the moment.

Bellator Announces Heavyweight Title Fight For Paris Card

It was announced Saturday that Bellator will head to the Accor Arena in Paris France on May 6th for a card. The show will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight rematch between Ryan Bader and Cheick Kongo.

The previous meeting between Bader and Kongo resulted in a no contest due to a first-round eye poke.

This fight was made after Bader defended his Bellator Heavyweight Championship against Valentin Moldavsky last weekend.
