Bellator MMA heads to Tel Aviv, Israel this Thursday (Nov. 16, 2017) at 2pm ET and will air via tape delay on Spike TV. This card took a significant blow over the weekend when featherweight champion Patricio “Pitbull” Freire suffered an injury and was forced to withdraw from the main event against Daniel Weichel. As a result that matchup was cancelled and Israel’s Noad Lahat was bumped up to the main event as he takes on Jeremiah Labiano.
Lahat (11-3) is coming off a unanimous decision setback to Henry Corrales at Bellator 182 in September, which snapped his two-fight win streak. The 33-year-old looks to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time in his career. Labiano (11-5) has won two-straight fights, including unanimous decision win over Stephen Cervantes at Conquer FC 4 in June. “The Kid” is 3-3 in his last six fights.
In the co-main event, UFC veteran John Salter looks for his seventh win in a row when he battles Jason Radliffe. Salter (14-3) hasn’t lost a fight since 2012 and has finished all of his opponents during his winning streak. The 32-year-old has yet to go the distance in his 17-fight career. Radcliffe (12-4) heads into this matchup on a two-fight skid and will be making his promotional debut.
