Report: Chris Gonzalez Faces Luis Vargas At Bellator 226


A lightweight division attraction has been added to Bellator 226 according to MMA Fighting as Chris Gonzalez is going to be in action against Luis Vargas. 

Gonzalez (2-0-0) has competed once before under the Bellator MMA banner, defeating Charlie Radtke by unanimous decision at Bellator 221. Gonzalez made his professional MMA debut late last year at Gladiator Challenge: Avalanche, defeating Tyrese McCloud by first round submission. Gonzalez has no amateur MMA experience to speak of, so his professional MMA experience stands as the fighter’s complete MMA experience.
