In addition, the co-main event of Bellator 185: Mousasi vs. Shlemenko will feature a light heavyweight contest pitting "King Mo" Lawal (21-6, 1 NC) against former titleholder Liam McGeary (12-2) аnd Heather "The Heat" Hardy (1-0) in MMA, (20-0) in boxing will return to the Bellator cage. She made her MMA debut at Bellator 180 where she defeated Alice Yaguer in the final round of their match in Madison Square Garden. Additional main and preliminary card bouts will be announcing in the coming weeks.

Long-considered to be one of the elite two-division threats in MMA, Mousasi is set for his Bellator debut and is currently riding a five-fight win streak that includes recent knockout victories over two former world champions in Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort. Prior to his UFC tenure, Mousasi captured the STRIKEFORCE light heavyweight title, as well as the DREAM light heavyweight and middleweight titles in Japan. "The Dreamcatcher," who currently trains out of The Netherlands, has earned victories over some of the sports' biggest names, including Dan Henderson, "Jacare" Souza, Mark Hunt, Ovince Saint-Preux, Melvin Manhoef, Hector Lombard and "Babalu" Sobral.
   
Shlemenko, a former middleweight champion, has competed under the Viacom-owned promotion's umbrella since Bellator 16 in 2010. Known for his vicious finishing ability, "Storm" ruled with an iron fist over Bellator's 185-pound division, defending his belt on three occasions. One of the most dominant champions in Bellator history and currently riding a five-fight win streak, which includes a TKO victory over Kendall Grove at Bellator 162, Shlemenko has his sights set on earning a shot at once again becoming world champion.
