Neiman Gracie will finally return to the Bellator cage in March.
The undefeated welterweight, who tapped Bobby Flynn in his promotional debut in February of 2015, is slated to face Roger Carroll at the Bellator 151 card in Thackerville, Okla. on March 4, sources told MMAFighting.com.
Son of coral belt (red and black) Marcio Stambowsky and Carla Gracie, Gracie looks to extend his MMA record to 4-0 after scoring a pair of submission finishes at World Series of Fighting prior to his successful Bellator debut in 2015.
Carroll, on the other hand, attempts to win his first fight under the Bellator banner after losing to Brennan Ward in his promotional debut last July. "The Leprechaun" scored 15 of his 16 MMA victories by way of submission, including first-round finishes over Dan Hornbuckle and Clint Hester.
Scheduled for March 4 at the WinStar World Casino & Resort, Bellator 151 will feature former champion Joe Warren versus Darrion Caldwell in the main event. In the co-main event, rising star Michael Page takes on Fernando Gonzalez.
