Walter Gahadza and Kent Kauppinen are set to clash at Bellator 200 sources close to WHOA TV have disclosed. The match up will see a quick turnaround for both men who last appeared on the BAMMA London card that took place on March 9th.
They will be keen to return to winning ways after they each picked up losses. Gahadza, who met UFC veteran Colin ‘Freakshow’ Fletcher at BAMMA 34, picked up a submission loss as did Kauppinen who tapped to Fabian Edwards.
It will be a Bellator debut for both fighters who are joining an already stacked card that already includes a Bellator middleweight title matchup pitting current champ Rafael Carvalho (15-1) against Gegard Mousasi (43-6-2), a rematch between heavyweight fan-favorites Mirko Cro Cop (36-11-2, 1 NC) and Roy Nelson (23-15), while former titleholder Phil Davis (18-4) takes on Linton Vassell (18-6) in a light heavyweight matchup and undefeated British striker Michael “Venom” Page (12-0) meets David “The Caveman” Rickels (19-4, 2 NC) at welterweight.
