Bellator MMA kicks off a solid MMA weekend with Bellator 184: Dantas vs. Caldwell live from the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, OK on Friday, October 6, 2017. In the main event, Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas will face off against Darrion Caldwell, with an action-packed main card leading up to the title event.

Bellator 184 also heralds the return of long-injured featherweight Pat Curran, entering the cage to battle John Teixeira. Curran’s long break from fighting has led to questions about his longevity in the fight game, but sites like are willing to take the risk for the potential to make some cash.
