The co-main event of Friday’s Bellator 177 will be a featherweight bout as Daniel Weichel looks to secure a title shot in the Bellator 145 pound division when he meets John Teixeira on the fight card coming the Budapest Sports Arena in Budapest, Hungary.

Weichel (38-9) enters Bellator 177 with three straight victories and has won seven of his eight fights in the promotion. His most recent win came in December at Bellator 169 as he defeated Brian Moore by arm-triangle choke submission and twenty-two of his victories have come by submission.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Weichel was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight on Friday against Teixeira.
