Bellator 166 adds LC Davis vs Marcos Galvao for Dec. 2 on Spike TV

Bellator MMA

Bellator 166: "Dantas vs. Warren 2" comes to WinStar World Casino and Resort on Dec. 2, 2016 in Thackerville, Okla. It's the first night of a doubleheader that will feature Bellator 167 "Curran vs. Teixeira" at the same venue on Dec. 3.

Bantamweights take center stage at Bellator 166 as current champion Eduardo Dantas will face down the self-described "Baddest Man on the Planet" Joe Warren in a rematch of their Bellator 128 fight where Warren took Dantas' title.

In the interim Marcos Galvao took the title from Warren and Dantas took the title from Galvao, which now leaves Galvao on the outside looking in. That's undoubtedly why Galvao (17-7-1) is now facing L.C. Davis (23-7) on the same card.

Davis was once on the cusp of a title shot himself after a "Fight of the Year" worthy match against Hideo Tokoro, but his loss to Joe Warren at Bellator 143 derailed those plans and he's been on the shelf ever since.

One additional fight has been signed for Bellator 166 -- a middleweight clash between two one loss fighters in Chris Honeycutt (8-1, 1 NC) and Ben Reiter (17-1-1) as the division seeks more contenders ahead of Bellator 168.
