Less than a week after signing former Sengoku featherweight contender Ronnie Mann, he is booked for Bellator 40 against Josh Arocho. The event takes place April 9th at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma. A non-title “super-fight” between welterweight champion, Ben Askren and Nick “The Goat” Thompson headlines the evening.

Ronnie Mann has won seven of his last eight fights with his only loss being a submission defeat to the #2 featherweight in the world, Hatsu Hioki back at Sengoku: Eighth Battle in May of 2009. Most recently, Mann defeated Douglas Evans to become the new Shark Fights featherweight champion. Ten of his eighteen wins have come by way of submission.

Josh Arocho, veteran of 15 professional fights, has had mixed results inside the cage. The biggest win of his career was in April of 2009 when he defeated UFC veteran Luke Caudillo in the second round with a rear naked choke. Arocho has since loss four of his last six fights, including losses to Bellator veteran Eric Marriott and prospect Justin Salas.
