A major heavyweight bout has been added to this month's Bellator 31 event.

During Thursday's Bellator broadcast on FOX Sports Net, officials confirmed a Sept. 30 booking between top heavyweight prospect Dave Herman (16-2 MMA, 1-0 BFC) and former UFC champ Ricco Rodriguez (44-11 MMA, 0-0 BFC), who's seen a career resurgence in recent years.

Herman and Bellator officials have been in a contract dispute.

Herman sued Bellator in July, as Sherdog.com initially reported, and the organization in turn counter-sued the fighter, who had been slated to fight at this weekend's Shark Fights 13 event before he was pulled from the card.

I couldn't believe how fit Ricco looked last night. Herman is a terrible matchup for him though. Ricco ought to go through with making 205.

Nice fight for free tv. Herman knee'd a guy in elite xc, which was questionable whether it was a groin strike or not, but looked great otherwise. The winner of this fight should go to the ufc and, I think Tim Sylvia has earned his way back to the UFC, or SF atleast.

Super happy to see Ricco get a fight in a bigger org, I think he takes out Herman, and possibly ends up back in the UFC by next year, well I hope so at least.

If Ricco makes it out of the 1st round I predict he will win the fight. Herman's cardio is always questionable and his striking is sub-par at best. Should be an good show though.
