Bellator 183 has been announced and will feature a main event between Benson Henderson (24-7) and Patricky Freire (17-8). The card will also feature the promotional debut of “Big Country” Roy Nelson (22-14) as he’s set to take on Javy Ayala (10-5) in the co-main event.
Possibly the biggest news on the card is the announcement that highly-touted prospect Aaron Pico (0-1) is set to return after a disappointing debut in which he lost to Zach Freeman by guillotine choke in just 24 seconds. His opponent is yet to be announced.
Shaping up to be a good card in San Jose. This will be the first card in San Jose since Bellator 172, where Matt Mitrione pulled out due to kidney stones and San Jose native, Josh Thomson, got knocked out by 183’s co-headliner Patricky Freire. It will air September 23 on Spike TV at 9:00pm EST.
