An interesting featherweight fight has been added to the December Bellator 169 card, as former title challenger Daniel Weichel takes on Paul Redmond.
Weichel (37-9) has posted a strong 9-1 mark over his last 10 fights. During his 14-year MMA career, “The Weasel” has scored 26 finishes, including 21 submission wins. Since signing with Bellator two years ago, he has won six of seven, including wins over Georgi Karakhanyan and Emmanuel Sanchez.
Redmond (11-6) dropped down to 145 pounds last year after a run as a lightweight. The 29-year-old will get to make his Bellator debut in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, as the event takes place from the 3Arena. Of his 11 career wins, the “Redser” has picked up five knockouts.
The card features a heavyweight main event between Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and former Olympian Satoshi Ishii.
