The next Bellator event will take place on April 16 in Italy and the mixed martial arts portion of the fight card will be headlined by a lightweight bout as Patricky “Pitbull” Freire meets Derek Campos.
Bellator officials confirmed on Wednesday that the lightweight bout between Pitbull and Campos will be the main event of the fight card.
Along with the April 16 event serving as Bellator 152, the event coming from the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy will serve as the inaugural Bellator Kickboxing event and will be headlined by Melvin Manhoef facing Alexandru Negrea in a middleweight bout.
