The fight card for Bellator 121 has been set, as heavyweights Eric Prindle and Stephen Thompson will meet in the main event. Also, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou will make his Bellator debut against Terry Davinney.

Set for June 6, the main card airs on Spike TV following prelims on

Along with Thompson-Prindle and Sokoudjou-Davinney, the light heavyweight opening round will take place, as Austen Heidlage faces Philipe Lins and Egidijus Valavicius meets Carlos Eduardo.

“Friday June 6 live on Spike is going to be a blast,” Bellator chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney said. “Colossus comes in angry and hungry to prove himself to fans and media on the big stage. I watched him battle in Pride years ago and to have him here now is great, while Sokoudjou finds himself in a similar situation. They both have great names and great heritage in our game and fans love to watch these two scrap. It was a shame to lose a fight like Curran vs. Pitbull, but with these two, our Light Heavyweight Tournament and a great prelim card, this is going to be a great night of fights.”

On the prelims, former Ultimate Fighter competitor Bubba McDaniels will face Matt Jones in a catchweight bout at 190 pounds. Also, Rodney Wallace and Kelly Anundson face off in another key prelim contest.
