With a pair of additions to the main card, and a whopping 11 fights added to the prelims, the lineup for Bellator 175 later this month now is complete.
A lightweight bout between Steve Kozola (7-0 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) and Jake Roberts (7-1 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) is ticketed for the main card, as is a featherweight bout between UFC veteran Noad Lahat (10-2 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) and Lloyd Carter (10-8 MMA, 0-1 BMMA). Promotion officials announced the new bookings today.
Bellator 175, featuring the second fight between Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, takes place March 31 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., a northwest suburb of Chicago. The main card will air on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.
Kozola will be fighting for the first time in a year when he steps in against Roberts. AT WSOF 30, he stayed perfect with a first-round TKO of Matt Church. That win piggy-backed on a pair of 2015 knockouts for Bellator against Jonathan Rivera and Ian Butler. All seven of his career wins are by stoppage.
