A featherweight bout has been added to Bellator 106 on November 2nd as Mike Richman will meet Rob Emerson.
TheMMAReport.com was able to confirm the bout after Richman announced the fight on Twitter and the fight will be apart of the preliminary card on Spike TV.
Bellator 106 will take place from the Long Beach Convention Center on November 2nd and will be headlined by Quinton “Rampage” Jackson meeting Tito Ortiz in a light heavyweight bout.
Richman (15-3) is a two time featherweight tournament participant as he was a semifinalist during season seven and was defeated by Frodo Khasbulaev in the final of the season eight tournament. Three of his four wins in Bellator have come by TKO/KO and all of those wins came in the first round.
Emerson (12-10, 1NC) will be making his Bellator debut in this fight and will be looking for his second straight win. He was originally scheduled to face Patricio Pitbull in his Bellator debut in July but an injury forced him to pull out of the fight.
