IN HIDALGO, TEXAS ON SEPT. 25
JOEY ‘THE MEXICUTIONER’ BELTRAN TAKES ON KENDALL ‘DA SPYDER’ GROVE IN CO-MAIN EVENT
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (September 24, 2015) – Bellator MMA 143: Warren vs. Davis will be on Friday, September 25 the promotion will debut at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas. In the main event, Joe Warren (12-4) will be fighting against L.C. Davis (23-6) and in the co-main is Joey Beltran (16-11, 1 NC) will face Kendall Grove (21-15, 1 NC).
Warren is a two-division champion who also served as a coach during the inaugural season of “Fight Master.” In addition to his win over the current bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao, the Olympic-caliber wrestler has defeated an impressive list of fighters including Georgi Karakhanyan, Patricio Freire, and Eduardo Dantas since taking up the sport of mixed martial arts in 2009.
Davis was one half of arguably the best MMA contest thus far in 2015 when he faced Hideo Tokoro at “Bellator 135: “Warren vs. Galvao 2.” The former World Extreme Cagefighting and Affliction standout has nearly double the amount of fight experience than “The Baddest Man on the Planet” boasts, and has emerged victorious in seven of his last eight professional contests.
Beltran has competed against some of the best light heavyweights the promotion has to offer, with matchups against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko, Emanuel “The Hardcore Kid” Newton.
The San Diego, Calif., native Kendall Grove, has finished 13 of his 16 victories as a professional and will look to extend his current winning streak when he returns to the Bellator MMA cage. Grove has been involved in some epic matchups, including his most recent effort against Brandon Halsey at “Bellator 137: Halsey vs. Grove” in May. At only 32-years-old, “Da Spyder” hopes that a win against another prolific striker like Beltran will serve him well in his pursuit of Bellator MMA gold.
Ryan Couture (10-3) versus Nick “The Ghost” Gonzalez (19-12) will be the main event for the prelimanry card. Ryan Couture will look to stay undefeated in 2015. The son of MMA legend Randy Couture, the former Strikeforce competitor has finished all the aforementioned wins via rear-naked choke submission. “The Ghost” competed at the promotion’s inaugural event back in 2009 and then again at Bellator 6. With 30-fights to his name, the Austin, Texas native will compete professionally for the first time in nearly two years.
