By Tristen Critchfield Dec 10, 2019


Curtis Millender will square off against Moses Murrietta at Bellator 238.

Sherdog.com confirmed the booking with a promotion official on Tuesday following an initial report from FanSided. Bellator 238 takes place on Jan. 25 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., and is headlined by a featherweight championship clash between Julia Budd and Cristiane Justino. Millender vs. Murrieta will be contested at a 175-pound catchweight.

Millender previously went 2-2 over the course of two separate stints with the California-based promotion. The 32-year-old Californian compiled a nine-fight winning streak from June 2016 to December 2018 that included a trio of triumphs in the UFC. Millender was released from the UFC after back-to-back losses to Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos and Belal Muhammad.

Murrietta, meanwhile, has competed for organizations such as Legacy Fighting Alliance and M-1 Challenge over the course of his professional tenure. The 30-year-old was successful in his lone promotional appearance, stopping Chris Herrera via first-round TKO at Bellator 193.
