They may not be the top ranked mixed martial arts heavyweights, however James “The Colossus” Thompson and Houston “The Assassin” Alexander are known for their heavy hands and knock out power.
Thompson (20-14) and Alexander (16-10) will headline Bellator 129, which will air on Spike TV on Friday October 17 in the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Both fighters won their previous matches in Bellator via TKO, and Thompson is riding a six-fight unbeaten streak (5-0, 1 NC due to judging error). Alexander has won three of his last four fights, and is now 1-1 in Bellator.
Alexander will not be the only former UFC vet on this card as former UFC contenders Josh “The Dentist” Neer and Paul “The Gentleman” Bradley will fight in the main event of the evening.
