Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas will defend his title against Marcos Galvao at Bellator 89 on February 14. MMAjunkie.com confirmed the fight with sources close to the promotion on Thursday.
Bellator 89 is expected to take place from Charlotte's Bojangles Coliseum. The bout would serve as the main event, with the season eight middleweight tournament also scheduled to start that night.
Dantas (14-3) is a perfect 4-0 inside the Bellator cage, but was defeated this past August while competing in Brazil against Tyson Nam. The knockout loss kept him on the sidelines for the remainder of the year.
Galvao (13-5-1) won the season six tournament title to secure his shot at the belt. He has won four of his six Bellator fights.
