Dave Herman has an opponent for Bellator 31 on Sept., 30, 2010.
After Ricco Rodriguez was forced off his scheduled bout with Herman, Bellator found a replacement in Michal Kita from Poland, according to MMAweekly.com.
Kita has fought in four bouts for M-1 Global, winning three of those fights. "Masakra" has never gone to a decision in his mixed martial arts career. In all 14 bouts, Kita has either stopped his opponents or his opponents have stopped him.
This will be Herman's first bout since he was disqualified against Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou back in May of this year. This will also be Herman's first bout under Bellator since May of last year.
Herman and Bellator were locked in a legal issue in which Herman sued the organization due to his contract, which prevented him from competing at certain promotions. Bellator counter-sued Herman, forcing him off the recent Shark Fights 13 card.
Now after nearly two years since signing the contract, Herman returns to compete at Bellator 31, which will take place at L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort, Lake Charles, Louisiana.
