Daniel Weichel vs. Keoni Diggs set for Bellator 261.
FanSided MMA has confirmed that Daniel Weichel will step again into the cage for the primary time since November 2020 when he faces Keoni Diggs at Bellator 261. The featherweight bout will happen on June 25 on the Mohegan Solar Area in Uncasville, CT.
Weichel will probably be getting into the cage for the primary time since his loss to Emmanuel Sanchez throughout the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix quarterfinals. That bout, a rematch of their 2016 bout, noticed Weichel fall on the judges scorecards. Previous to that loss, Weichel defeated Saul Rogers by way of resolution.
Weichel has fought the whose-who of Bellator, competing in opposition to Goiti Yamauchi, Georgi Karakhanyan, Desmond Inexperienced, Pat Curran and two title photographs in opposition to reigning champion, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.
His opponent is undefeated using a 9 battle profitable streak. A win over the extremely achieved Weichel might propel Diggs excessive within the Bellator rankings, particularly if he finishes the previous event winner. Diggs has two back-to-back submissions over Scotty Hao and Derek Campos however hasn’t competed since September 2020.
