Bellator books Mads Burnell vs. Daniel Weichel on Dublin card
Ask and you shall receive.
Mads Burnell called for a fight with former Bellator featherweight title challenger Daniel Weichel and now he’s got one. The two fighters will face off Sept. 23 at 3Arena in Dublin, Bellator officials informed MMA Junkie on Monday.
Denmark’s Burnell (17-5 MMA, 4-2 BMMA) snapped a two-fight losing skid when he defeated Justin Gonzales by unanimous decision at Bellator 295 in April. Thus far in his Bellator tenure, Burnell has lost only decisions to title challengers Adam Borics and Pedro Carvalho. Ten of his 17 career victories have come inside the distance.
Germany’s Weichel (42-14 MMA, 11-6 BMMA) has alternated wins and losses since September 2019 – with a 3-3 record during that stretch. Following a knockout win over Robert Whiteford in May 2022, Weichel lost a unanimous decision to Timur Khizriev in November.
