The Bellator Bantamweight Title rematch between Marcos Galvao and Eduardo Dantas has gotten its third scheduled date, with Bellator officials announcing on Monday that the fight will headline Bellator 156 on June 17.
Galvao and Dantas, former teammates and friends at Nova Uniao, first met back in February of 2013. Dantas, then Champion, knocked Galvao out to defend the title. He dropped that to Joe Warren in October of 2014, from whom Galvao then captured the title last March.
The two fighters were scheduled to meet last fall, then again in February, with both matchups falling through. The most recent booking at Bellator 150 was called off the day before the event as Galvao fell ill during fight week.
Bellator 156 will air live on Spike from the SaveMart Center in Fresno, Calif.
