The second night of Bellator's December doubleheader has been rounded out with the announcement of a bantamweight rematch.

Darrion Caldwell (9-1) will square off with Joe Taimanglo (23-6-1) on the main card of Bellator 167 on Dec. 3 in Thackerville, Okla. The event comes one night after Bellator 166 in the same location.

Caldwell is one of Bellator's top prospects. But just as his hype train started to take off, he ran into Taimanglo at Bellator 159. Taimanglo ended Caldwell's nine-fight win streak with a guillotine choke just nine seconds into the third round.

That was the fourth straight victory for the 32-year-old native of Guam, who is 6-2 in Bellator since debuting with the company in 2013.
