Matt Mitrione Returns To Action At Bellator 158 Vs. Oli Thompson

Following his come-from-behind knockout win at Bellator 157 Friday night, Matt Mitrione’s next opponent was revealed.

Mitrione, who scored a first round finish vs. Carl Seumanutafa in his Bellator debut, will take on Oli Thompson next month at Bellator 158.

The former UFC fighter and Ultimate Fighter competitor improved to 10-5 with the win and snapped a two-fight losing skid in the process. Mitrione had previously earned three first round finishes in 2014 before falling to Ben Rothwell and Travis Browne.

Thompson (17-8) is a native of England and carries a five-fight win streak into the bout. He has not competed since a December finish of Fernando Rodrigues, Jr.

Bellator 158 features Paul Daley vs. Douglas Lima and airs on Spike.
