Where To Watch: Yoel Romero Vs. Phil Davis Tonight

UFC veteran Yoel Romero will be a newcomer when he steps into the octagon Saturday night.

Romero (13-5) will face former light heavyweight champion Phil Davis (22-6, 1 NC) at Bellator 266, headlining the event.

Romero, 44, said he feels good about his Bellator debut, despite being inactive for 18 months.

“I feel good because I didn’t have to drop weight. I just kept my own weight,” Romero said. “I just switched divisions and kept my own weight. And I’ve always trained with heavyweights and light heavyweights within my training camp. I’m completely adapted to the heavier weights.”

Meanwhile, Davis, 36, he’s looking forward to the matchup.

“I think there’s going to be a feeling-out process where we’re both trying to see where the other person is spatially and see what kind of angles and feints and fakes were using. After that I think it’s 4th of July. Fireworks!” Davis said.

Here’s when and where to catch the fight: 

Date: September 18 

Time: 10 p.m. ET (7 p.m. prelims)
