Bellator is loading up for the return to London.

At the main event of Bellator London, set to take place in The SSE Arena, Wembley on June 22. Mousasi and Lovato were originally scheduled to face yet another at Bellator 214 in January, but Mousasi was forced out of that meeting with a spine injury.

Also expected to be around the card have been England’therefore Paul Daley and Ireland’s James Gallagher, making use of their respective competitions still to be termed.

Mousasi (45-6-2) seeks the 2nd sequential defense of the middleweight championship after beating welterweight winner Rory MacDonald via second-round TKO in a superfight last September. “The dream-catcher ” is 3-0 since moving from the UFC into Bellator and has won eight straight complete.

In nine pro spells, Lovato has yet experience a loss. Lovato, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace who fights of Oklahoma, is 5-0 in the Bellator cage together with three of the wins coming in under two minutes.

Daley (40-17-2) has lost three of the last four spells, for example his most recent outing, a five-round unanimous decision loss to rival Michael Page that was widely considered disappointing due to its lack of fireworks. That outcome also knocked him out from the opening round of their Bellator Welterweight World Grandprix. He competes in England for the very first time as Bellator 179 in May 2017, when he was submitted by MacDonald.

Even the 22-year-old Gallagher rebounded from the very first loss in his livelihood, a catastrophic first-round KO as a result of Ricky Bandejas, by submitting Steven Graham in just 2:30 in Bellator 2 17 this past February. He rose to 8-1 as a specialist and 5-1 in the Bellator cage.
