A lightweight matchup has been added to Bellator 154, making the main card complete for the May 14 event in San Jose.
Undefeated Adam Piccolotti (7-0) will meet meet Ray Wood (7-1) at the SAP Center, the company announced Thursday.
Piccolotti, a 27-year old Northern California native, is 3-0 in Bellator, with his most recent performance a second-round finish of Mario Soto at Bellator 147. He has five finishes among his seven career wins.
Piccolotti was initially scheduled to face Jordan Parsons on the show, but Parsons passed away Tuesday, three days after become the victim of a horrible hit-and-run accident in Delray Beach, Florida.
While Bellator had initially indicated Piccolotti would be pulled from the card, Piccolotti indicated a desire to continue fighting, so Bellator found an interesting opponent in Wood, a native of Maine. Wood carries a two-fight win streak into the contest, including a spinning backfist KO of Chris Jones in Wood’s Bellator debut at Bellator 151.
