Undefeated prospect Austin Vanderford will make his international debut for Bellator.

The promotion confirmed a seven-bout card set for the 14th of November at “Menora Mivtachim Arena” in Tel Aviv.

According Tapology, Bozinyan is affiliated with the “Bingo Boom Fight Club” and is coming off a recent loss.

Bellator also has confirmed the return of lightweight veteran Roger Huerta (24-11-1 MMA, 1-4 BMMA), who faces Bellator newcomer Sidney Outlaw (13-3 MMA, 0-0 BMMA).

Bellator also announced new contracts with three Israeli fighters to exclusive multi-fight agreements: Raz Bring (4-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), Adam Keresh (3-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) and Simon Smotritsky (5-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA).
