Marcos Galvao defends bantamweight title against Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 144

New, comments

Bellator bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao will put his title on the line in October.

"Loro", who captured the 135-pound belt with a second-round submission victory over Joe Warren in March, will look to avenge his last loss against former teammate Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 144, sources told

Bellator 144 is set to take place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Dantas (17-4) was the Bellator bantamweight titleholder when Galvao (17-6-1) fought for the title for the first time, losing via second-round knockout. "Loro" went to win three in a row with a pair of knockouts to earn another shot at the belt, tapping Warren with a kneebar. After losing his belt in 2014, "Dudu" defeated Mike Richman via decision in May.
