The Nova Uniao Feather Weight is supposed to welcome Kevin Croom back to the promotion from the preliminary portion of Bellator 218 in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on March 22, Bellator officials told MMA Fighting.
Macapa (21-4-2), who snapped a four-fight winning series under the Bellator banner had a 21-1-2 album like a pro fighter, currently has his back against the wall after losing three straight, a pair of conclusions to Daniel Weichel along with Pat Curran prior to a knock out defeat as a result of A.J. McKee.
Croom (19-11), known as “The Hardhitting Hillbilly”, competed for promotions such as LFA, Shooto, Fight Nights, Titan Hamilton Academical and RFA over the past 10 years. Croom fought once under the Bellator banner, submitting Brian Davidson using a rear-naked choke at Bellator 26 in 2010. In his last MMA bout, Croom lost via submission to Kamuela Kirk at LFA 5-3.
Bellator 218 will happen at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville and comprise Feather Weights Emmanuel Sanchez along with Georgi Karakhanyan in the Primary event. Former light heavyweight title competition Linton Vassell matches Valentin Moldavsky in the second-to-last bout.
