Bellator has once again booked a rematch between Patrick Freire and Derek Campos. The promotion announced on Friday that the lightweight talents will battle in the co-main event of Bellator 194 in Uncasville on Feb. 16.

This is the fourth time Bellator has matched-up them up for a rematch after announcing it for Bellator 152, 167 and 181. The fight was cancelled twice in 2016 due to injuries, and once in 2017 when “Pitbull” was moved for a fight with Ben Henderson.

Freire (18-8) was hoping to earn a shot at 155-pound champion Brent Primus after defeating Josh Thomson and Henderson in 2017, but will try to score another win over Campos almost four years after his second-round TKO finish at Bellator 117.

Campos (19-6) enters the rematch riding a four-fight winning streak, including stoppages over Melvin Guillard and Brandon Girtz. His other wins came against Derek Anderson and Djamil Chan.

Bellator 194 takes place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Unscasville, and features a heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal bout between Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione in the main event.
