After a two fight stint in the Bellator featherweight division, Jordan Parsons is moving back to the lightweight division and he will meet Adam Piccolotti at Bellator 154 next month.
The fight booking was announced by Bellator on Friday afternoon.
Bellator 154 will take place on May 14 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California and will be headlined by Phil Davis meeting Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in a light heavyweight bout.
Parsons (11-2) is coming off a split decision defeat against Bubba Jenkins at Bellator 146 and the defeat snapped a four fight winning streak. This will be his first fight at lightweight since his Bellator debut, which was a knockout victory against Tim Bazer. Piccolotti (7-0) made his debut in Bellator at the beginning of last year and he is 3-0 in the promotion. His last two wins have come by submission and the most recent one came in December against Mario Soto.
