Neiman Gracie and Logan Storley, two of the best welterweights on the Bellator roster, will collide next to see who advances one step closer to the 170-pound belt.

Multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting that the matchup is set for a yet-to-be-announced event on Feb. 19. The card is expected to take place at the Mohegan sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Gracie (11-2) scored the first knockout victory of his MMA career this past September, finishing Mark Lemminger in under 90 seconds at Bellator 266.

The grandson of Robson Gracie holds a 9-2 record under the Bellator banner with wins over the likes of Ed Ruth and Jon Fitch, losing only to then-champion Rory MacDonald and Jason Jackson.

Storley (12-1) rebounded from the first setback of his MMA career — a split decision to future welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov — with a split decision win over Dante Schiro in August.

“Storm” went undefeated inside the RFA and LFA cages before signing with Bellator in 2017, racking up a 7-1 record in the company. The 29-year-old holds a victory over UFC welterweight Joaquin Buckley.
