Shortly after his last win, Austin Vanderford has another booking. Originally reported by MMAFighting, it was announced that Vanderford will face Grachik Bozinyan in Tel Aviv, Israel at Bellator 234 in November.
Vanderford extended his undefeated professional career two weekends back, defeating Joseph Creer via a second-round doctor’s stoppage. It was “The Gentleman’s” second fight within the promotion.
With a 10-3 record, Russian fighter Grachik Bozinyan will be a tough opponent. Coming from the Absolute Championship Berkut promotion, Bozinyan has quite the portfolio of submission finishes.
Bellator 234 is currently scheduled to be headlined by Sergei Kharitonov and Linton Vassell. Kharitonov recently defeated Matt Mitrione, coincidentally on the same card as Vanderford. Vassell will attempt to break a losing streak which was kicked off nearly two years ago.
Scheduled to take place on November 14th at the Menora Mivtachim Arena, Bellator 234 will be the promotion’s fourth appearance in Tel Aviv, Israel. Here’s the full card so far:
- Sergei Kharitonov (30-7) vs. Linton Vassell (19-8) (Heavyweight)
- Roger Huerta (24-11-1) vs. Sidney Outlaw (13-3) (Lightweight)
- Olga Rubin (6-1) vs. Sinead Kavanagh (5-4) (Featherweight)
- Austin Vanderford (8-0) vs. Grachik Bozinyan (10-3) (Middleweight)
