Bellator has announced four more fights for its maiden voyage to Birmingham on May 4. The event will be the second of the promotion’s European Series following the series debut in Newcastle earlier this year.

TUF finalist Saul Rogers (12-2-0) takes on former Cage Warriors featherweight title contender Aiden Lee (7-3-0), with both men set to make their promotional debuts on the night. The bout will mark Rogers’ first competitive outing in over a year.

Former UFC fighter James Mulheron (11-3-0) will look to bounce back into the win column when he takes on former Cage Warriors champion Lee Chadwick (24-14-1), who moves up to light heavyweight after failing to make the middleweight mark ahead of his Newcastle bout with Fabian Edwards.

After his successful outing in his Bellator debut against Abner Lloveras, former UFC fighter and U.K. legend “Judo” Jimmy Wallhead (30-11-0) looks to go 2-0 under the banner when he faces Italian Giorgio Pietrini (16-4-1) who dispatched his first Bellator assignment in just 20 seconds.

Striking standout Dominique Wooding (5-2-0) will make his promotional debut on the night after his Birmingham debut was called off at the eleventh hour. David Khalsa (2-4-0) will look to turnaround a four fight losing streak when he faces the Titan proponent.

After his stunning debut showing, Ashley Reece (7-1-0) will face Bellator newcomer Craig Turner (7-0-1), who has yet to taste defeat in his professional career.

Bellator Birmingham is set to be headlined by former Bellator lightweight champion Brent Primus, who pits his skillets against established U.K. campaigner Tim Wilde on the night.
