Raufeon Stots vs. Danny Sabatello Set For Bellator 289 In December

The semi-finals for the Bellator Bantamweight World Grand Prix have been set for this winter.

Ariel Helwani was the first to report the news on The MMA Hour this past Monday, revealing that interim Bellator bantamweight champion, Raufeon Stots, and Danny Sabatello are set to headline Bellator 289 on December 9 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Additionally reported by Helwani, former Bellator title challenger, Patchy Mix will take on Magomed Magomedov in the night’s co-headliner. The promotion also subsequently confirmed the bookings themselves via a tweet.

Stots is currently riding a ten-fight winning streak and is coming off of a third-round KO victory over former Bellator bantamweight champ, Juan Archuleta, at Bellator 279.

Sabatello meanwhile is on a seven-fight winning streak of his own and will look to build on a unanimous decision win over Leandro Higo at Bellator 282.
