Bellator 163 takes place Friday, Nov. 4 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Headlining the card is a light heavyweight championship match between titleholder Liam McGeary and former UFC light heavyweight contender Phil Davis.

McGeary comes into the bout with a perfect record at 11-0. The 6-foot-6 Englishman is looking to step into the Bellator cage for the first time in over a year, 14 months removed from his first title defense against former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz. McGeary has also defeated former Bellator champion Emmanuel Newton, dethroning the then-titleholder with a five-round unanimous decision.

Davis, meanwhile, looks to cap off an impressive run since joining the Bellator ranks in 2015. Davis won the company’s four-man, one-night light heavyweight tournament, submitting Newton and knocking out Francis Carmont on the same night last September. He followed up the win with a unanimous decision over Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in May at Bellator 154.
