Bellator 120: Marcin Held to Face Nate Jolly
By FCF Staff
With Patricky “Pitbull” Freire sidelined due to injury, Bellator has announced that the lightweight’s scheduled opponent for May 17th, Marcin Held, will battle Nate Jolly instead.
The latter has been booked to fight Will Brooks at Bellator 120, who has since been moved into a interim, lightweight title fight with Michael Chandler.
Held (18-3) is coming off a submission win, via triangle choke, over Derek Anderson last month, to advance to the lightweight tourney finals.
Jolly (13-5), meanwhile, will be making his Bellator debut after decisioning Gerric Hayes in October.
Here is the updated line-up for Bellator 120, which go down at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi.
