After winning the Bellator lightweight championship in October, Patricky Freire will defend his belt in November.
Unbeaten challenger Usman Nurmagomedov, who has won all three of his previous fights in the opening round, will be in the cage with Freire.
On November 18, Bellator will host a show that will likely be highlighted by the lightweight title fight.
With his second-round knockout of Peter Queally at Bellator 270 in November, Freire, at age 36, became the new lightweight champion.
The 24-year-old Nurmagomedov has fought four times under the Bellator banner. His cousin, UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov, is a fighter in the UFC.
The fight card for the 18th of November has not yet been completed.
