Finally, Bellator Fighting Championship will send heavyweight champion Cole Konrad out for a title defense. Konrad will meet Eric Prindle at Bellator 65 on April 13.
The card takes place from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The main card, which will also feature Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky defending his title against Eduardo Dantas, will be televised by MTV2.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney made the announcement of the fight on Spike TV’s MMA Uncensored Live this past Thursday.
Konrad (8-0) has not competed since last August when he defeated Paul Buentello in a non-title fight. The former NCAA Div. I wrestling champion has been waiting for the Bellator heavyweight tourney to determine a No. 1 contender.
Prindle (7-1) became that contender after Thiago Santos failed to make weight for their finale fight. The two first in a match that ended in a no-contest after Santos connected with a low blow.
Konrad should be able to use his vast wrestling to control Prindle and wear him out, as Prindle’s cardio has come into play in his previous Bellator fights.
