The Bellator debut of Dominic Mazzotta will take place on Friday night as he will meet A.J. McKee in a featherweight bout on the main card of Bellator 178.

Mazzotta (12-1) has been viewed as one of the best prospects on the regional scene for some time and his only professional defeat came against current UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt in 2014. Since that defeat, he has won nine in a row and seven of those wins have come by submission.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Mazzotta was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight on Friday against McKee.
