bellator 118

Bellator will crown a new interim bantamweight champion this Friday night at Bellator 118, as Joe Warren takes on Rafael Silva.

The main card airs on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET after prelims stream online.

Warren was scheduled to meet Eduardo Dantas for the bantamweight belt, but Dantas suffered a head injury in training. With him being sidelined for the extended future, officials went ahead and decided to pair Warren and fellow former tournament winner Silva in an interim title bout.

Other main card fights include Andrey Koreshkov vs. Sam Oropeza in the welterweight semifinals, while Liam McGeary and Mike Mucitelli meet in the opening round of the Summer Series light heavyweight tourney.
