A previously reported fight between Bellator Middleweight Champion Gegard Mousasi and undefeated contender Johnny Eblen now has a date.
The matchup between Mousasi and Eblen has been announced for a June 24th Bellator card at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, USA.
Eblen will be putting his flawless pro record on the line when challenging for the belt. He has climbed up Bellator’s 185-pound ranks over the past couple of years, scoring seven wins in the promotion. His most recent victory came just earlier this month against former title challenger and UFC vet John Salter.
Mousasi, currently on his second reign as Bellator champ, will be looking to defend his belt for the third time. He had a quick win in his last outing, finishing Austin Vanderford in less than two minutes with strikes in February.
