Bellator 152 will be the promotions first overseas event and will broadcast from the Pala Alpitour arena in Torino, Italy. The main event features Patricky “Pitbull” Freire (15-7) versus Edimilson "Kevin" Souza (15-4), and the promotional debut of Italian fan-favorite Alessio Sakara (17-11), who faces Brian Rogers (12-8) in a light heavyweight match-up.

Souza replaces Freire’s original opponent, Derek Campos who was removed due to injury. This will be a promotional debut for Souza as well but coming on short notice against Freire might be a very rough welcome. Freire made short work of Ryan Couture at Bellator 148 and is looking to keep up the momentum in Italy.

“Bellator 152: Pitbull vs. Souza” airs on SPIKE Saturday, April 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
