By Tristen Critchfield Oct 14, 2016

Daniel Weichel will clash with Paul Redmond at Bellator 169 in Dublin, promotion officials announced Friday.

Bellator 169 marks the organization’s first trip to Ireland and will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between Muhammed Lawal and Satoshi Ishi. The card will take place at the 3Arena on Dec. 16 and airs on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.

After coming up short in a 145-pound title bid against Patricio Freire at Bellator 138, Weichel has rebounded to earn back-to-back victories over Georgi Karakhanyan and Emmanuel Sanchez. The 31-year-old German owns a 37-9 career mark and is 6-1 inside the Bellator cage.

Redmond, 29, is a longtime veteran of the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship promotion. The Dublin native went 0-2 during a brief stint in the UFC in 2015, but returned to the win column by outpointing Chris Stringer at BAMMA 26 on Sept. 10.
