Michael Page set to face Fernando Gonzalez at Bellator 158 in London


Bellator's big summertime show in London is beginning to take shape.

On Friday night, Bellator announced two fights for Bellator 158. Michael Page (10-0), fresh off his submission win over Jeremie Holloway at Bellator 153 at the Mohegan Sun, will face Fernando Gonzalez (25-13) in his native country.

Also added to the July 16 event is a light heavyweight but between veterans Francis Carmont (24-11) and Linton Vassell (16-5). For the 34-year old Carmont, this will mark his fourth fight under the Bellator banner. He is coming off of a loss against Phil Davis at Bellator: Dynamite in September.

Vassell, 32, has won two of three fights, including his last one against Emanuel Newton at Bellator 149 in Houston. He upset Newton via unanimous decision.

Bellator 158 will take place at the O2 Arena in London, and will feature a heavyweight rematch between Kimbo Slice (6-2) and James Thompson (20-16), as well as a welterweight rematch between Paul Daley and Josh Koscheck.
