A middleweight title fight has been set for Bellator 108. Bellator officials have confirmed that champion Alexander Shlemenko will meet tournament winner Doug Marshall in the main event of the November show.
Shlemenko and Marshall were initially scheduled to face off at Bellator 98, but an injury forced Marshall to drop out of the fight. Shlemenko was paired with Brett Cooper instead, defending his title with a unanimous decision.
Shlemenko is on an impressive 11 fight winning streak, including victories over Ikuhisa Minowa, Zelg Galešić, Maiquel Falcão, and Vitor Vianna. He currently holds a 48-7 record.
Marshall earned the title shot by winning the Season 8 tournament. A former WEC champion, Marshall is undefeated in Bellator, and holds a 18-6 record.
Bellator 108 will take place at the Revel Atlantic City in New Jersey on November 15. It will air live on Spike TV.
