Light heavyweight contender Phil Davis
will square off against Vadim
Nemkov
when Bellator MMA returns to Israel on Nov. 15.

Sherdog.com confirmed the pairing with a promotion official
following an initial report from
MMAjunkie.com
. Additionally, Ryan
Couture
will face Haim Gozali
in a rematch at lightweight, while Cindy
Dandois
will lock horns with Olga Rubin
at featherweight.

The card takes place at Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv, Israel,
and will feature a featherweight championship clash pitting
Patricio
Freire
against Emmanuel
Sanchez
.

Davis has won six of his seven appearances under the Bellator MMA
banner, with his only setback coming to Ryan Bader
via split decision in a 205-pound title bout. Most recently, “Mr.
Wonderful” scored a third-round knockout of Linton
Vassell
at Bellator 200 on May 25.

An intriguing prospect from Russia, the 26-year-old Nemkov enters
the matchup on a four-bout winning streak. Nemkov captured a
signature triumph at Bellator 194, as he stopped ex-light
heavyweight champ Liam
McGeary
with leg kicks 4:02 into the third round.

Couture has lost three of his last four in Bellator, but his lone
win during that time was a clear-cut decision over Gozali at
Bellator 180. Gozali has split a pair of bouts since that defeat,
most recently dropping a three-round verdict to Jose Campos
at Bellator 192.

Dandois has won four fights in a row since exiting the UFC
following a loss to
Alexis
Davis
in April 2017. Rubin, a native of Holon, Israel, has been
victorious in her first four professional outings – including a
second-round stoppage of Joana
Filipa Magalhaes
at Bellator 188.
