Khonry Gracie has a date and opponent for his next Bellator fight.

The son of Royce Gracie will meet Hector Saldana in a welterweight contest in the preliminary portion of Bellator 238 in Inglewood, CA, on Jan. 25, promotion officials told MMA Fighting on Wednesday.

Gracie (2-1) started his MMA career in Jan. 2018 with a decision defeat to Devon Brock, but bounced back later that year with a decision victory over Ron Becker and then scored a first-round submission against Oscar Vera in August.

Aldana (3-4) is a Team Quest welterweight who competed for promotions like Combate Americas and RFA before inking a deal with Bellator. “The Mexicutioner” scored all of his wins by knockout.

Bellator 238 will take place at The Forum in Inglewood and feature the long awaited debut of former UFC, Strikeforce and Invicta FC champion Cris Cyborg, taking on Bellator featherweight queen Julia Budd in the main event.
