Bellator MMA

Steve Kozola considered joining the military before getting an offer to return to Bellator

Steve Kozola will return to competition for the first time in nearly one year tomorrow night at Bellator 175 as he will meet Jake Roberts in a lightweight bout on the fight card coming from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Kozola (7-0) made his Bellator debut in 2015 as he defeated Jonathan Rivera by knockout in the second round and he followed up that victory with a first round knockout against Ian Butler at Bellator 137. His last fight came in April of last year as he scored a TKO victory over Matt Church at World Series of Fighting 30.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Kozola was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight set for tomorrow night at Bellator 175 against Roberts.
