Bellator 195: Caldwell vs. Higo - March 2 (OFFICIAL DISCUSSION)

Post by Kingfedor on Tue Dec 19, 2017 10:37 pm

The Bellator bantamweight championship will be up for grabs Friday, March 2 when Darrion Caldwell (11-1) makes his first title defense against Leandro Higo (18-3) at Bellator 195 inside WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla., the same venue where "The Wolf" captured the belt earlier this year.

Caldwell has been on a steady ascension to championship status since signing with Bellator in 2014. Ahead of his championship victory over Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 184, which brought his Bellator record to 8-1, the 30-year-old collected five wins by way of first-round knockout or submission. The run was highlighted by a remarkable stoppage of former multi-division champion Joe Warren. Hailing from Rahway, N.J. and training alongside Bellator standouts Phil Davis and Justin Lawrence at Alliance MMA in San Diego, Calif., "The Wolf" also serves as one of the main sparring partners of former UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz.

Higo signed with Bellator in February riding an eight-fight win-streak and earned the Legacy Fighting Alliance 135-pound crown in the process. Fresh off an impressive win against Joe Taimanglo, the 28-year-old Pitbull Brothers product also competed on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4 in 2015. A proud carrier of the Olympic torch ahead of the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil, "Pitbull" will now set his sights on carrying the torch in Bellator's bantamweight division.

I wouldn't be too surprised if Higo takes the title in this one
