Melvin Guillard will now face Derek Campos this coming February 19 at Bellator 149, officials confirmed recently.
Guillard was scheduled to take on Mike Bronzoulis, but an injury took Bronzoulis out of the bout. The Guillard-Campos fight will be the second of the night on Spike TV from inside Houston’s Toyota Center.
The card features a double main event, as Ken Shamrock takes on Royce Gracie and Kimbo Slice meets Dhafir “Dada 5000” Harris. Also scheduled are Emmanuel Sanchez vs. Daniel Pineda and Emanuel Newton vs. Linton Vassell.
Guillard (32-15-2) lost to Brandon Girtz in his Bellator debut, suffering a broken hand during the fight. Campos (15-6) has lost his last two, taking on the likes of former Bellator champion Michael Chandler, Patricky “Pitbull” Freire and Brandon Girtz during his run.
