Yoel Romero VS Phil Davis Bellator 266

Bellator 266 which will have action, thrill, professionalism, power and finesse.

'Davis vs. Romero'. Several people familiar with the promotion plans have confirmed to MMA Fighting that the light heavyweight matchup between Romero and Davis will headline the Bellator's Sept. 18 event in San Jose, California.

MMA reporter Ariel Helwani reported the first booking. Get ready to watch the action. Because the soldier of God has been set free and he is ready to take action once again. Romero initially made his promotional debut at the May Bellator 258 event, after which pre-fight medical testing was not cleared, which was later described as an eye problem. Bellator president Scott Cooker revealed to MMA Junky on Thursday that the "soldier of God" had been cleared to contest.

Romero, 44, who is currently ranked 10th in the world in the MMA Fighting Middleweight rankings, will consider three fights - Robert Whittaker, Paolo Costa and Israel Adesanya - in February.

Davis recently stopped his three-fight winning streak by 205-pound champion Vadim Nemkov in the opening round of the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix at Bellator 257 in April.

Leading the race, Davis - ranked 11th in the world in MMA Fighting - won the hurdles against Liam McGary and Carl Albrightson.

The question is, will the return journey be easier for Rupero? Will Davis face the soldier of God?
