After losing originally scheduled opponent Manny Vazquez to injury, Dantas (20-6) will now face short-notice replacement Toby Misech (11-6) in a bantamweight bout at the upcoming Uncasville, Conn., show scheduled for Feb. 15. The change was first reported by MMAjunkie and officially announced Thursday.
This will be Dantas’s first fight since being knocked out inside of a round by Michael McDonald last July. The two-time Bellator bantamweight champion is on the first losing skid of his career. “Dudu” is 10-3 inside the Bellator cage with recent wins over Leandro Higo, Joe Warren, and Marcos Galvao.
Misech made a successful Bellator debut this past December with a third-round knockout of Edward Thommes. He has won five of his last seven fights.
