[Fight Week] Bellator 158: Fight Card Information and Video Preview


Bellator 158 will be held on July 16, 2016, at the O2 Arena in London, England. The event will air live in prime time on Spike TV.

This will be the first bout that Bellator MMA has held in the United Kingdom.

Originally, Bellator President Scott Coker announced that Kimbo Slice and James Thompson would compete in the main event of Bellator 158, however tragically these plans had to be scrapped, as Slice died suddenly on June 6, 2016, of heart failure.

Josh Koscheck was scheduled to make his debut on this card against Paul Daley in the co-main event, however, Koscheck withdrew from the bout and was replaced by Douglas Lima. This bout will now feature as the main event.
