A middleweight bout has been added to the main card of Bellator 150 as Francisco “Kiko” France will look for his second win in the promotion when he meets veteran Kendall Grove on the February 26 card coming from Mulvane, Kansas.
The fight booking was made official by Bellator on Thursday.
Bellator 150 will come from the Kansas Star Arena and be headlined by a title fight rematch as Marcos Galvao makes his first bantamweight title defense as he is challenged by former Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas.
France (13-3-1) won his Bellator debut in November at Bellator 146 as he submitted Ben Reiter in the second round. He is unbeaten in his last seven fights and four of his last five wins have come by submission. Grove (22-15, 1NC) will also enter this fight following a victory as he defeated Joey Beltran by TKO at Bellator 143.
