Herman vs. Rodriguez booked for Bellator 31

source: mmajunkie.com

A major heavyweight bout has been added to this month's Bellator 31 event.

During Thursday's Bellator broadcast on FOX Sports Net, officials confirmed a Sept. 30 booking between top heavyweight prospect Dave Herman (16-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and former UFC champ Ricco Rodriguez (44-11 MMA, 0-0 BFC), who's seen a career resurgence in recent years.

Herman and Bellator officials have been in a contract dispute.

Herman sued Bellator in July, as Sherdog.com initially reported, and the organization in turn counter-sued the fighter, who had been slated to fight at this weekend's Shark Fights 13 event before he was pulled from the card.

The Bellator 31 booking likely represents some resolution to the situation.

Agreed. If Herman is training he will take this.

Has Pee Wee been training? If so, he'll smash Ricco.

 Did anyone else hear Ricco mention that he is Bellator's 'hired gun' or something to that affect?  Sounds like Bjorn is trying to get Pee Wee's ass beat for all the shit he has caused b/c of his contract.

They're live on whatever your affiliate FSN network is, but they get preempted a lot. I'm lucky; I have cablevision, which means my FSN affiliate is MSG+ which hasn't preempted it except once in the last two seasons, but I hear that a lot of places aren't that lucky.
