Bellator is back with another “tent pole” event. Bellator 134, also dubbed the “British Invasion” will feature a light heavyweight title defense in the main event, as champion Emanuel Newton takes on Brit Liam McGeary. In the co-main, slugger Paul Daley returns to the Bellator cage for the first time in two years, to take on Brazilian Andre Santos. Title challengers Cheick Kongo (heavyweight) and King Mo (light heavyweight) will face off in a showcase bout in the heavyweight division, and recent light heavyweight title challenger Linton Vassell returns against action fighter Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou. Its a night that promises a lot of fun action.
