Two bantamweights heading in opposite directions will meet at The Forum.
Higo, a one-time bantamweight title challenger whose last fight took place at 145 pounds, is looking to break out of a 1-3 slump. He has lost back-to-back fights, most recently falling to Aaron Pico by first-round TKO in September of last year.
Bellator 228 takes place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Sept. 28. In the main event, featherweight champion Patricio Freire defends his title against Juan Archuleta in what will also serve as an opening round Featherweight World Grand Prix matchup. The show will air live on the DAZN streaming service.
