A pair of contests have been added to the Bellator 210 lineup, as Joe Warren will meet Shawn Bunch at bantamweight, while Gerald Harris will face Hracho Darpinyan at welterweight.
Sherdog.com confirmed the bookings with a promotion official on Tuesday. MMAjunkie.com first reported the Warren-Bunch matchup. Bellator 210 takes place on Nov. 30 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla., and is headlined by a middleweight tilt between John Salter and Chidi Njokuani. The main card airs on Paramount and DAZN at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
Warren, a former bantamweight and featherweight champ, will be making his 20th Bellator appearance when he faces Bunch. The 42-year-old last appeared at Bellator 195, where he dropped a split decision to Joe Taimanglo. Warren is 13-6 in the California-based promotion and 15-7 as a professional overall.
Bunch is 4-2 under the Bellator banner but hasn’t competed in the promotion since a first-round submission loss to Darrion Caldwell in September 2015. The 35-year-old enters the matchup on a three-fight winning streak.
Harris, 39, is coming off back-to-back losses against Rafael Lovato Jr. and Yaroslavl Amosov in his first two Bellator appearances. Harris has fought in the UFC, World Series of Fighting, Dream, and Legacy Fighting Championship en route to compiling a 25-7 career mark.
Darpinyan will enter his Bellator debut on a four-bout winning streak. The 32-year-old Armenian fighter is 17-8-1 as a pro, with 14 victories coming by way of knockout, technical knockout or submission.
