Bellator MMA has announced a second bout for Bellator 141: "Guillard vs. Girtz" at Pechanga Resort & Casino. And Melvin Guillard and Brandon Girtz won't be the only Lightweight standouts fighting in Temecula, Calif., on August 28, 2015.

Popular San Bernardino-based fighter Saad Awad (18-6) -- winner of three straight in the Bellator cage and the only man to hand "Ill" Will Brooks a loss -- will go toe-to-toe with Patricky "Pitbull" Freire (13-6), elder brother of Bellator's reigning Featherweight champion Patricio Freire.

Freire was last seen inside the Bellator cage at Bellator 126 in Sept. 2014, losing a unanimous decision to Marcin Held. Awad is the fresher of the two fighters in Bellator action, picking up a unanimous decision over Rob Sinclair at Bellator 136 in April.

Tickets for Bellator 141 are already for sale. For complete coverage of Bellator 140 and all things Spike TV click here.
