Bellator has confirmed that it’s next lightweight tournament finale between Dave Jansen and Marcin Held will take place March 7th at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in California. The card will be broadcast on SPIKE TV.
Held (15-2) is coming off victories over Murad Machaev and Rich Clementi, the latter of which he tapped out with a highlight reel toe hold at Bellator 81 in November.
Jansen (18-2), on the other hand, has defeated Magomed Saadulaev by submission and Ricardo Tirloni via split decision to advance to the tourney finals.
“I’ve had a lot of time to work on my game plan and really focus on this fight on March 7th,” Jansen was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “Marcin has the total package when it comes to submissions, so I know what I need to focus on to win this fight, and get a shot at the Bellator title.”
