The full card for Bellator 135 is set.

L.C. Davis will meet Hideo Tokoro in a matchup of MMA veterans on the March 27 event's prelims, Bellator announced Wednesday. Also on the prelims is top Roufusport prospect Emmanuel Sanchez, who meets Alejando Villalobos.

The Bellator 135 main event remains a bantamweight title fight between champion Joe Warren and Marcos Galvao. Fellow bantamweights Eduardo Dantas and Mike Richman meet in the co-headliner that likely amounts to a title eliminator. The card takes place at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla.

Davis (22-6), a WEC veteran has won six of his last seven fights, including two in Bellator. The 34-year-old has notable wins over the likes of Diego Nunes and Javier Vazquez. Tokoro (32-27-2) is a 15-year pro who has lost two straight and is making his Bellator debut. The 37-year-old DREAM and K-1 veteran has beaten Brad Pickett, Royler Gracie and Darren Uyenoyama. A draw against Royce Gracie is also on his record.

Sanchez (9-1) won his Bellator debut against Stephen Banaszak by first-round submission last September. The 24-year-old featherweight has won five straight with four first-round finishes.
