Bellator MMA announced on Thursday that longtime veteran Kendall Grove will fight Francisco France on the main card of Bellator 150.
The event, which is headlined by the bantamweight championship rematch between Marcos Galvao and Eduardo Dantas, will be held at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kan., on Feb. 26.
Grove, who won Season 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, capped off a 2015 campaign with a sensational knockout of Joey Beltran at Bellator 143. Earlier in the year, “Da Spyder” was stopped in the fourth by Brandon Halsey at Bellator 137. Grove will make his sixth appearance inside Bellator’s decagon; thus far he’s compiled a 3-2 record.
France, who has fought under the WSOF, Shooto and Strikeforce banners, has been on a tear lately. He’s gone 6-0-1 in his last seven bouts, with his last battle coming at Bellator 146 in November, when he submitted Ben Reiter via rear-naked choke in the second round.
Bellator 150 will be televised live on Spike starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
