Bellator officials announced Tuesday that Lorenz Larkin will face Fernando Gonzalez in a 180-pound catchweight bout in the main event of Bellator 193 on Jan. 26 at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif.
Larkin (18-7) looks for his first win since September 2016 as he’s dropped both of his matchups in Bellator to Douglas Lima and most recently Paul Daley. The 31-year-old hasn’t lost three-straight fights since 2014. Gonzalez (27-14) has won seven of his last eight fights including a third-round submission victory over Brennan Ward at Bellator 182 back in September.
