Bellator 150: Hawaii's Kendall Grove just declared war on France

Francisco France, that is.

Bellator MMA

Bellator 150 "Galvao vs. Dantas 2" comes to the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas on Fri., Feb. 26, 2016. The main event is a long-anticipated rematch between current Bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao and former champion Eduardo Dantas.

A solid Spike TV card features hometown hero David "The Caveman" Rickels fighting "Super Duper" Bobby Cooper at Lightweight, while titans clash in a Heavyweight bout between "Spartan" Vinicius Queiroz and perennial contender Cheick Kongo.

Those fighters are now bolstered by a final addition to the broadcast. Longtime fan favorite and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 winner Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove (22-15, 1 NC) brings his Hawaiian swing to Kansas for a Middleweight bout with Francisco France (13-3-1).

Grove has four wins in his last six fights into the cage including three victories in Bellator MMA. His last fight was a spectacular third round TKO of "The Mexicutioner" Joey Beltran at Bellator 143 last September.

France is on an even better roll over the same time span. In six fights dating back to 2013, "Kiko" has no losses and one draw, reeling off five straight wins including a defeat of Ben Reiter via rear naked choke in his Bellator debut.
