After an unsatisfying end to their first meeting, Chris Honeycutt and Paul Bradley are going to run it back at Bellator 148.
Bellator officials announced the rebooked welterweight pairing, which will be part of the main card, on Thursday. Honeycutt and Bradley first squared off at Bellator 140, where their bout ended in a no contest in the second round due to an accidental clash of heads.
Bellator 148 takes place at Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif., on Jan. 29 and is headlined by a 170-pound tilt pitting longtime UFC veteran Josh Koscheck against Matt Secor. The evening’s main card will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
Three preliminary contests were also announced Thursday: Anthony Avila vs. John Reedy at featherweight; Javy Ayala vs. Carl Seumanutafa at heavyweight; and Art Arciniega vs. Justin Smiley at featherweight.
Prior to facing Bradley, Honeycutt was unbeaten in his first six professional appearances, including a pair of stoppages under the Bellator MMA banner. A 30-fight veteran, Bradley is 2-1 in Bellator with triumphs over Josh Neer and Karl Amoussou.
