Eduardo Dantas, Paul Daley Planned For Bellator 79

Bellator Fighting Championships is set to invade Canada once again this year, as Bellator 79 will take place from the Casino Rama on November 2.

While no matches have been officially made, three fighters are currently set to compete on the card.

Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas, former UFC and Strikeforce veteran Paul Daley, and Canada’s Ryan Ford will all be in action.

“Our fans in Ontario have always been top-notch, and they are in for another great night with names like Eduardo Dantas, Paul Daley and Ryan ‘The Real Deal’ Ford,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said in a press release. “We’ve seen some tremendous fights at Casino Rama, and I expect the same on November 2.”

Further fight information should become available in the coming weeks. The event will air live on MTV2 and EPIX, along with complete online streaming available, as well.
