Ryan Scope is getting a second chance to beat a Bellator veteran.

The 27-year-old Scope has been matched up with Derek Campos (19-8) in the lightweight co-main event of Bellator Birmingham on May 4, officials announced Tuesday.

This will be the second Bellator appearance for Scope (11-2) following his debut with the promotion in February. At Bellator Newcastle, Scope lost a split decision to longtime lightweight contender Patricky “Pitbull” Freire. Prior to that, Scope had won 11 of his first 12 pro bouts and he claimed a BAMMA lightweight title in Dec. 2017.

Campos, 30, is coming off of back-to-back losses to Freire and Sam Sicilia. Sicilia defeated Campos by split decision at Bellator 212 last December to drop Campos’s Bellator record to 8-6.

Bellator Birmingham will be headlined by a lightweight bout between former lightweight champion Brent Primus (8-1) and Tim Wilde (12-3). The event takes place on May 4 at Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England, and it will air on Paramount Network.
