England’s own Michael Page will meet Derek Anderson at Bellator 179, the promotion announced on Friday.
Set for May 19 from The SSE Arena in London, the card features the promotional debut of Rory MacDonald as he meets Paul Daley.
Page (12-0) has quickly risen the welterweight ranks thanks to wins over Fernando Gonzalez, Evangelista Santos and Jeremie Holloway.
Anderson (14-3) is coming off a decision loss to Derek Campos that snapped his two-fight win streak. He is 5-3 over his last eight.
