Bellator 137: Benji Radach Returning to Cage For First Time in Over Four Years
By FCF Staff
Bellator has announced that Benji Radach will be fighting for the first time in over four years on May 15th, as the UFC vet has agreed to fight Ben Reiter. The 36 year-old is stepping in for the injured AJ Matthews.
Radach hasn’t fought since December, 2010, when he was decisioned by Ovince Saint Preux, while fighting for Strikeforce. The middleweight, who has battled injuries over the years, is 2-3 in his last 5 fights.
Reiter (15-0-1), meanwhile, is coming off a decision win over Shamir Garcia at Bellator 124 last September. The 25 year-old has won five straight bouts.
Bellator 137 will be hosted by the Pechanga Resort and Casino, and will feature middleweight champion Brandon Halsey taking on Kendall Grove.
