Bellator MMA returns to Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif., tomorrow night (Fri., Jan. 29, 2016) with Bellator 148: “Daley vs. Uhrich.” which will air live on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET.

He’s had some significant success outside of Bellator and comes in on a three-fight win streak, which was capped off by beating Bellator veteran ….View full article
