McGeary vs. Vassell confirmed

McGeary vs. Vassell to take place at Bellator 179

British light heavyweights, Liam McGeary and Linton Vassell are set to lock horns in London at Bellator 179. This was confirmed by Vassell on Saturday afternoon via his Facebook page.

The fight was announced after McGeary’s domination of Brett McDermott at Bellator 173 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This was his first outing since losing his light heavyweight championship to Phil Davis at Bellator 163. McGeary won the title from Emanuel Newton at Bellator 134 and he defended the title against Tito Ortiz at Bellator: Dynamite.

Linton ‘The Swarm’ Vassell hasn’t fought since defeating Francis Carmont at Bellator 165 in November 2016. Like McGeary, he holds a victory over Emanuel Newton, and he is hoping a victory over McGeary will lead him to earn a second title shot.

Bellator 179 is headlined by a welterweight contest between the debuting Rory MacDonald and Paul Daley.
