Adam Piccolotti and Derek Anderson will square off in a 160-pound catch-weight affair at Bellator 189.
A promotion official confirmed the pairing to Sherdog.com on Tuesday. Bellator 189 takes place at Winstar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla. on Dec. 1 and will see Julia Budd defend her featherweight crown against Arlene Blencowe in the evening’s main event. The card airs on Spike at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
The 29-year-old Piccolotti suffered his first lost in 10 professional outings at Bellator 183, as he was submitted in the opening stanza by Goiti Yamuachi in the opening frame. Piccolotti began his promotional tenure with five consecutive triumphs.
Anderson, meanwhile, saw a two-fight winning come to an end in a unanimous decision defeat to Derek Campos at Bellator 170 on Jan. 21. Anderson is 5-3 under the Bellator banner, with notable wins over Patricky Freire (twice), Saad Awad and Brandon Girtz.
