Alan Belcher will defend his heavyweight title against ex-UFC champion Junior Dos Santos in Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Bare-Knuckle MMA on March 2 in Orlando, Fla.

Masvidal announced the pairing on Tuesday.

Belcher will make his second appearance in Gamebred after earning a split decision win over Roy Nelson in his debut to crown the first ever heavyweight champion in the promotion. Prior to his move to bare-knuckle MMA, Belcher put together an impressive 4-0 resume in BKFC where he also served as heavyweight champion before his title was stripped and he left the organization.

A 15-time UFC veteran, Belcher actually retired in 2015 before making his return as a bare-knuckle fighter five years later. He’s also dabbled in boxing, which includes a win over social influencer Chase DeMoor this past July.

As for Dos Santos, he will also make his second appearance under the Gamebred banner after winning a split decision over Fabricio Werdum this past September. Afterwads, Dos Santos committed to stick with bare-knuckle MMA for his immediate future.

Dos Santos now attempts to add another title to his resume when he clashes with Belcher in a bare-knuckle MMA fight in March.
