Eduardo Dantas is ready to get back inside the Bellator cage.
The former Bellator bantamweight champion is set to meet Manny Vazquez on the main card of Bellator 215 in Uncasville, CT, on Feb. 15, multiple sources told MMA Fighting on Wednesday.
Dantas (20-6) fought for the last time in July, when he suffered a leg fracture before losing by first-round knockout loss to Michael McDonald. Prior to the defeat, “Dudu” lost his 135-pound belt in a decision loss to Darrion Caldwell.
Vazquez (12-3) fought once under the Bellator banner, defeating Nate Williams via decision in March 2017. He cut down to flyweight to compete at Dana White’s Contender Series in July of that year, losing a decision to Joby Sanchez. Vazquez returned to 135 pounds to score a title win over Shawn West in March 2018.
