Bellator 149: "Shamrock vs. Gracie 3" takes place on Feb. 19, 2016, inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The featured bout on the main card is an openweight contest between mixed martial arts (MMA) legends Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie.
Originally, Melvin Guillard was scheduled to face Mike Bronzoulis in a lightweight bout set for Spike TV, but Bronzoulis withdrew from Bellator 149 due to injury. Derek Campos has agreed to take the bout in his stead on short notice.
Longtime fight veteran Guillard (32-15-2, 2 NC) was brought into Bellator MMA with much fanfare, but came up short against "Cold Roll" Brandon Gritz (14-4) in the main event of Bellator 141 last August.
Coincidentally, Girtz would go on to face the aforementioned Campos (15-6) and knock him out 37 seconds into the first round at Bellator 146 in November. Campos will look to reverse a two-fight slide in this new bout.
Heavyweight Justin Wren (11-2) has also been added to the night's action in his second fight for Bellator. "The Big Pygmy" will be taking on Juan Torres (4-4) in the featured bout aired on Spike.com before the main card.
