The former multiple world kickboxing champion did not succeed in obtaining this revenge that he so hoped for against his young compatriot, who had, it is true, placed very clear conditions on the negotiating table (” It’s going to take money, elbows and maybe five rounds).

His opponent hasn’t fought in three years

The San Diego native, who has won three of his last four fights contested within the framework of Bellator, has in fact not competed in an official fight since May 7… 2021, and a defeat by doctor’s order against British star Michael “Venom” Page. The other co-main event of this Bellator on May 17 at the Accor Arena will pit the Russian Magomed Magomedov against the American Patrick “Patchy” Mix, the organization’s bantamweight champion. However, once again, the 16,000 faces of fans at the Accor Arena will be focused on Doumbè.
