Cat Zingano will fight in March, but not in a title fight against Cris Cyborg.

Promotional officials confirmed to MMA Fighting on Tuesday that Zingano will face Pam Sorenson in a preliminary bout at Bellator 276. The event takes place March 12 at the Family Arena in St. Charles, Miss. The Irish Sun was first to report the featherweight matchup.

In addition, Bellator officials confirmed to MMA Fighting a number of additions to the fight card. In a middleweight matchup, recent title challenger John Salter will take on the surging Johnny Eblen in a main card matchup. Salter will look to bounce back from a third-round TKO loss to champion Gegard Mousasi at Bellator 264, while Eblen — an American Top Team standout — has won all 10 of his pro bouts, including a 5-0 start to his Bellator career.

The preliminary card will also feature a welterweight contest between Derek Anderson and Goiti Yamauchi, a featherweight matchup between Cody Law and Johnny Soto, as well as newly re-signed Roman Faraldo — fresh off his KO of the Year candidate at Bellator 271 — taking on Kelvin Rayford.

Diana Avsaragova will make her third Bellator appearance as she faces Ashley Deen in a flyweight bout, and Romero Cotton will put his undefeated record on the line against Lance Wright.

Bellator 276 will be headlined by a five-round featherweight bout between Adam Borics and Mads Burnell.
