Bellator is returning to Hungary with a bantamweight world title fight pitting Eduardo "Dudu" Dantas (19-4) against Darrion "The Wolf" Caldwell (10-1) serving as the main event of Bellator 177: Dantas vs. Caldwell from the Budapest Sports Arena on April 14. The MMA portion of the evening will also feature a featherweight bout between Hungarian-born Adam "The Kid" Borics (5-0) and Anthony "Pretty Boy" Taylor (1-2).

In addition, Bellator Kickboxing 6 will be headlined by a welterweight world title rematch featuring Zoltan Laszak (11-2)against Karim Ghajji (97-13-1). Additional bouts for both events will be announced in the coming weeks.

Dantas made his presence felt during his last outing, successfully defending his bantamweight championship belt in a five-round victory over Joe Warren. A 10-fight veteran of Bellator MMA, "Dudu" has recorded victories in 12 of his last 14 bouts, including nine under the direction of the Scott Coker-led promotion. Hailing from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, the flashy 27-year-old is widely known as one of the most dynamic competitors in the division, tallying four knockouts and six submissions over his 23-fight career. A two-time Bellator MMA bantamweight world champion, Dantas will look to defend his title for the second time since winning the belt in a victory over former champion Marcos Galvao, and for the fourth time overall.

The 29-year-old Caldwell will be competing for division gold for the first time in his career and is coming off of a crucial victory over Joe Taimanglo at Bellator 167. "The Wolf" was able to avenge his earlier loss to Taimanglo, earning his 10th career victory and seventh under the Bellator MMA banner. Caldwell has collected five wins by way of first round knockout or submission, making him one of the most dangerous compeititors in the 135-pound class. Hailing from Rahway, N.J., the 11-fight veteran has quickly put together an impressive professional resume inside the cage, highlighted by a remarkable first round finish over former multi-division champion Joe Warren, a man whom Caldwell idolized coming into the sport. The Alliance MMA product now has the opportunity of a lifetime, as he prepares for the next chapter of his career and a shot at championship glory.

I think Dantas will be holding onto the belt.

Bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas, who was initially scheduled to defend his title against Darrion Caldwell, will now take on fellow Brazilian Leandro Higo after Caldwell suffered an undisclosed injury.

Rising featherweight John Teixeira is also set to return to action at the Budapest Sports Arena, as he faces Daniel Weichel in the main card.

Dantas (19-4) re-captured the 135-pound belt in June 2016, defeating former teammate Marcos Galvao for the second time. “Dudu" went on to defend the gold six months later, avenging his only Bellator loss with a decision over Joe Warren.

Higo (17-2), one of the best bantamweight prospects out of Brazil, makes his promotional debut after winning eight straight, including winning and defending the RFA and LFA belts.

Fan favorite and Lion Fight and Glory veteran Joe Schilling will take on Alexandru Negrea in a middleweight bout while featherweights Jorina Baars and Irene Martins will lock horns as well. Additionally, popular knockout artist Raymond Daniels will collide with Gyorfi Csaba at welterweight

Higo missed weight. No longer a title fight. Might be a 3 rounder now. Still a good fight though but sucks it's not for the belt.
