Bellator 162 takes place Friday Oct. 21 from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.

Headlining the card is a middleweight matchup between former Bellator champion Alexander Shlemenko and Kendall Grove.

Shlemenko makes his return to the Bellator cage for the first time in more than a year. He most recently fought for Bellator in February 2015, defeating Melvin Manhoef in what was overturned into a No Contest after failing a post-fight drug test with elevated testosterone levels. He was given a three-year suspension by the California State Athletic Commission, but had the ban lifted in July 2016.

“Storm” has¬†fought twice in Russia since his suspension, winning both contests via decision and third-round submission. He’s 0-2 with one no contest in his last three performances with Bellator, losing to Tito Ortiz and Brandon Halsey.

Grove, meanwhile finds himself riding a two-fight winning streak at 185 pounds. The former UFC veteran most recently defeated Francisco France via second-round knockout, following up a third-round TKO win over Joey Beltran from last September.
