Welterweight mainstay Ben Saunders will be returning to the giant Bellator cage on July 20 at Bellator 72. This time competing at a 178 lb catchweight, the ATT product welcomes Brian Warren to the promotion.
Saunders (13-5), a muay Thai and jiu jitsu specialist, has found great success hitherto in the Bellator cage, but has yet to capture a tournament championship, losing to Douglas Lima in the finals of the season 5 tournament and most recently Bryan Baker in the season 6 semifinals. A likely participant in the coming tournament, “Killa B” takes a break from the format to be a part of the Bellator Summer Series in a one-off bout.
Warren (18-15) will be looking to impress in his Bellator debut against the tried-and-true veteran. Although his record looks substandard, “Mr. Unbreakable” is on a five-fight win-streak since making the move to welterweight. Now undefeated since 2010, Warren finally gets his chance in the big show.
