Bellator “Birmingham” has its co-headliner, as Derek Campos will square off against Ryan Scope in a lightweight clash.
The promotion recently announced the matchup. Bellator “Birmingham” is the second event in the California-based organization’s European Fight Series. The card takes place at Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England, and is headlined by a 155-pound scrap pitting ex-champ Brent Primus against Tim Wilde.
Additionally, Sherdog.com confirmed that kickboxing star Raymond Daniels will compete in the MMA realm for just the second time when he faces Jon Durrant at welterweight. Daniels was submitted by Jeremiah Metcalfe at a Strikeforce event in 2008 in his MMA debut.
Campos enters the fight on a two-bout skid after falling to Sam Sicilia and Patricky Freire in his last two Bellator appearances. “The Stallion” is 8-6 during his promotional tenure and 19-8 as a professional overall.
Scope, meanwhile, is coming off a narrow split-decision loss to Freire at Bellator “Newcastle” on Feb. 9. The 26-year-old Englishman owns a 10-2 career mark that includes eight victories inside the distance.
