BUDAPEST, HUNGARY – Combatants from Bellator 177: Dantas vs. Higo and Bellator Kickboxing 6 have cleared the final hurdle in Budapest this morning after taking to the scales. Tomorrow night, both events will emanate from the Budapest Sports Arena in Hungary.
Eduardo “Dudu” Dantas was set to defend his Bellator bantamweight belt against former LFA champ Leandro Higo, however Higo was unable to hit his mark of 135 lbs., and as a result, the five-round title fight has been changed to a three-round non-title fight.
Additionally, Bellator kickboxing welterweight titleholder Zoltan Laszak takes on Karim Ghajji in a championship rematch headlining a stacked five-fight kickboxing event.
Bellator 177: Dantas vs. Higo will be broadcast Friday, April 14 on SPIKE at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, while Bellator Kickboxing 6 will air immediately following the MMA portion of the event, beginning at 11 p.m. ET/10 p.m. CT.
