"Irish" Brennan Ward has a chance to make it three in a row. Dennis Olson has a chance for redemption.
And both men will return to the venue of their last Bellator fight to do it, Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Oct. 23, 2015.
Ward scored a first round knockout against last-minute replacement Roger Carroll at the Welterweight showcase known as Bellator 140. It was on the same card and night that Olson suffered a technical knockout loss to Paul Daley.
