Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley II Made Official For Bellator 158 In July

As previously reported, on Sunday evening, Kimbo Slice’s next opponent for his Bellator MMA return was made official.

In a rematch of one of the most-watched MMA fights of all-time, Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson (6-2) will meet James “The Colossus” Thompson (20-16-1), Bellator MMA President Scott Coker announced during a brief appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter on ESPNews.

Slice comes into the Thompson rematch riding a two-fight win streak, having defeated Dada 5000 (Dhafir Harris) and Ken Shamrock in his last two fights. He is also coming off of a 90-day suspension for failing a drug test.

The Slice-Thompson rematch will take place at the Bellator MMA event on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at the O2 Arena in London, England.

Additionally, a long-awaited rematch between Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley was announced for the 7/16 event. The two first met in the UFC where Daley took a shot at Koscheck after losing to him via decision, a move that ended up costing Daley his career in the UFC.
