The fight booking was announced by Bellator in a press release on Tuesday afternoon.

Kato (5-1) made his Bellator debut earlier this year and defeated Joe Schilling by knockout in the second round. All of his victories have come by TKO/KO and his knockout of Schilling will likely end up being the knockout of the year in MMA.

Manhoef (29-12-1, 2NC) recently came off a medical suspension with the California State Athletic Commission, which was due to his knockout lost against Alexander Shlemenko. That lost would eventually be overturned to a no-contest due to Shlemenko failing his post fight drug test.
