Bellator 184
October 6, 2017
Winstar World Casino

Thackerville, Oklahoma, USA

Main Card:
Eduardo Dantas (20-4)    vs.        (9-1) Darrion Caldwell   
Main Event |  Title Fight | Bantamweight | 135 lbs (61 kg)
Daniel Straus (25-7)        vs. (15-3) Emmanuel Sanchez   
Co-Main Event | Featherweight | 145 lbs (66 kg)

The main event of Bellator 184 will feature Bellator's two-time bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas (20-4) defending his belt against Darrion "The Wolf" Caldwell (10-1). In addition, the co-feature pits former featherweight titleholder Daniel Straus (24-7, 1 NC) competing against Emmanuel "El Matador" Sanchez (15-3).

Originally, Dantas and Caldwell were scheduled to compete for the title at Bellator 177; however, when Caldwell was forced to withdraw due to injury, "Dudu" went on to defeat Leandro Higo, besting his opponent on short notice. Hailing from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, the flashy 27-year-old is widely known as one of the most dynamic competitors in the division, recording victories in 13 of his last 15 bouts. Currently in the midst of his second stint as Bellator's bantamweight world champion, Dantas will look to stop Caldwell's meteoric rise to the top of the 135-pound division.

Coming off a victory over Joe Taimanglo at Bellator 167, the 29-year-old Caldwell will be competing for promotional gold for the first time in his career on October 6. "The Wolf" was able to avenge his earlier loss to Taimanglo, earning his 10th career victory. Caldwell has collected five wins by way of first-round knockout or submission, making him one of the most dangerous competitors at 135-pounds. Hailing from Rahway, N.J. and training alongside Bellator stars Phil Davis and Justin Lawrence at Alliance MMA in San Diego, Calif., Caldwell 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.
