Bellator 204 will grace our TV screens in one week, and the non-tentpole event (i.e., it’s just a regular Bellator) has Darrion Caldwell driving the bus in the main event.
If you’ll recall, Caldwell was the heavily-hyped wrestling stud who stumbled once in his climb to the top, but got back that submission loss and eventually secured the bantamweight title. Well, next week he’ll move up to featherweight and test the waters there.
Since this is Bellator we’re talking about, the act of champ moving up a weight class to snag another slice of glory really doesn’t have the same “oooohhh!” factor as, say, Conor McGregor doing it. But whatevs. It’s a fight, with good, skilled fighters, and we’re in the middle of a UFC dry spell, so you have to watch something on DVR Saturday morning… am I right?
Here’s a Caldwell hype reel, plus a hype reel for his opponent, Noad Lahat.
