Hailing from Paris, France, the 34-year-old Carmont will be making his first appearance of 2016 and fourth under the Bellator MMA umbrella. Carmont had strung together a couple wins before his most recent appearance at â€œBellator MMA: Dynamite 1.â€ After winning his first bout of the evening, Carmont replaced an injured Muhammed â€œKing Moâ€ Lawal on just a few minutesâ€™ notice, to face a formidable Phil Davis in the tournament final, where he was defeated. Now, â€œLimitlessâ€ looks to upset Klinger during the main card of â€œBellator 158: London.â€
A native of Przemysl, Poland, Klinger has been competing professionally since 2013 and taken fights almost exclusively in the United Kingdom. The 32-year-old went nearly three years without suffering his first loss as a pro, amassing finishes in all seven of his victories. â€œHitmanâ€ has laced up the gloves once already in 2016, and now looks to impress in his Bellator MMA debut when he faces Carmont on July 16 at The O2 in London.
