Bellator 69: Abe Wagner Says He’s Fighting Mark Holata
By FCF Staff
TUF 10 competitor Abe Wagner is reporting that he’ll face off with Mark Holata at Bellator’s upcoming May 18th card in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The heavyweight veteran made the announcement via his official Twitter account.
The promotion has not made any official announcement regarding the reported fight.
Wagner (10-5) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to recent tourney winner Eric Prindle in October, after submitting Justin Grizzard at a Victory Fighting Championship event in July.
The 32 year-old-veteran is 3-2 in his last five bouts which includes a stoppage win over former UFC champ Tim Sylvia last January.
Holata (11-3) hasn’t competed since October when he was knocked out by Ron Sparks at Bellator 52. Prior to the defeat, Holata had been on a eight fight win streak which included a unanimous decision win over UFC vet Carmelo Marrero last January.
Bellator 69 will be hosted by the Láuberge Casino and will feature a bout between veterans Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar.
The card will be broadcast live on MTV 2 and the night’s preliminary fights will be streamed at Spike.com.
