A lightweight division attraction will headline Bellator MMA Europe 2, which was announced during the Bellator MMA Europe 1 broadcast, as Brent Primus faces Tim Wilde.
Primus (8-1-0) is competing for the first time since losing the Bellator Lightweight Title to Michael Chandler at Bellator 212. Primus captured the Bellator Lightweight Title with a first round TKO win over Chandler in their first meeting at Bellator 180. Primus has competed an average of once a year since 2014, with 2013 serving as the only time he fought twice in the same year as a professional MMA fighter.
Wilde (12-3-0) is going to be making his Bellator MMA debut in this bout and does so on the strength of a three fight winning streak. Wilde won just one of three in Cage Warriors during his brief stint there, with that lone win coming over UFC veteran Mickael Lebout. Wilde has seen five of his professional MMA bouts go the distance and the fighter won all of those encounters.
Bellator MMA Europe 2 takes place on Saturday, May 4 from a location to be announced in Birmingham, England with Brent Primus and Tim Wilde headlining.
