An exciting middleweight title fight will mark the first Bellator event in Europe in 2022.
Gegard Mousasi will defend his belt against Austin Vanderford in the main event of Bellator: Dublin, with the fight night being scheduled for February 25th next year.
Vanderford, 31, sealed his spot as the No. 1 middleweight contender last May when he defeated Fabian Edwards via UD. The victory marked his fifth in a row with Bellator since making his debut in February 2019.
Mousasi, 36, a former Strikeforce champ who spent four years in the UFC, is on a three-fight winning streak and has won 11 of 12 dating back to February 2016.
