Both Davis and Vassell fell in their most recent challenges for the Bellator Light-heavyweight title, but with current champ Ryan Bader competing in the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix, it could put either man in position for a future title shot, depending on whether Bader is able to defeat King Mo in May.
Davis, who lost the belt to Bader in June 2017, bounced back from that loss with a win at Bellator 186 over Leonardo Leite, while Vassell lost on the same 186 card to Bader for the title.
