Erik Perez to Face Brian Moore at Bellator 258 on May 7

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 6, 2021


Erik Perez will clash with Brian Moore in a bantamweight bout at Bellator 258.

Milenio was first to report the pairing. Bellator 258 takes place on May 7 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and is headlined by a 135-pound championship tilt pitting Juan Archuleta against Sergio Pettis.

The 31-year-old Perez is still searching for his first Bellator win after falling to Toby Misech and Josh Hill in his first two promotional appearances. Prior to that, “El Goyito” had compiled a five-bout winning streak over stints in the UFC and Combate Americas.

Ireland’s Moore is coming off back-to-back triumphs over Binh Son Le and Simone D’Anna under the Bellator banner. The SBG Ireland representative is 4-3 during his promotional tenure and 13-7 as a professional overall.
