A crossover kickboxer returns to the Bellator MMA cage on March 29.
Former Glory standout Joe Schilling will meet Keith Barry in a middleweight matchup at Bellator 219 in Temecula, Calif., the company announced Tuesday.
Schilling has found mixed results in MMA, compiling a 3-5 record. But he’s also coming off a win in his most recent bout, a corner stoppage TKO over Will Morris at Bellator 218, which was Schilling’s first MMA fight in 2 1⁄2 years.
Berry (15-13-1, 1 NC) will be fighting for the first time in two years and seeking his first win since 2013. He won his first two Bellator fights, but has since had three losses, a no-contest, and a majority draw against Kevin Casey in his last bout at Bellator 170. When Berry is on, though, he’s a finisher, with nine knockouts and four submissions among his 15 wins.
Bellator 219 will be headlined with a lightweight between pitting Saad Awad against Brandon Girtz.
