Paul Daley will square off against Jason Jackson in a 175-pound catchweight affair at Bellator 260.
Promotion officials announced the bout on Wednesday. Bellator 260 takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on June 11 and is headlined by a welterweight title clash pitting Douglas Lima against Yaroslav Amosov. The main card airs on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
Daley is riding the momentum of a three-bout winning streak within the California-based organization. Most recently, “Semtex” scored a second-round TKO of Sabah Homasi at Bellator 257 on April 16. The 38-year-old British fighter has also bested Saad Awad and Erick Silva during his current run and is 42-17-2 over the course of a pro tenure that began in 2003.
Jackson, meanwhile, has won five of six Bellator appearances. His last two outings have been his most significant, as he has earned back-to-back decision triumphs over Benson Henderson and Neiman Gracie. “The Ass Kicking Machine” is 14-4 as a professional overall.
