Bellator veteran Ben Saunders (13-5-2 MMA, 4-2 BFC) will take a break from tournament competition to fight promotional newcomer Brian Warren (18-15-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) later this month at Bellator 72.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the non-tournament bout with sources close to the event.

The fight will be contested at a catchweight of 178 pounds.

Bellator 72 takes place July 20 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla. Main-card fights air on MTV2, and Spike.com streams the prelims.

Saunders vs. Warren is likely to be a preliminary-card or swing bout.

Saunders returns to the cage following a semifinal-round finish in Bellator's season-six eight-man tournament, which followed a runner-up finish in the season-five tournament. The losses came to notables Bryan Baker and Douglas Lima, respectively. The American Top Team fighter and UFC vet now fights in his current home state of Florida.

I still hope Saunders can find his way back to the big show

I've been a Saunders fan since he created a new forehead for Wolfe. I was pretty outraged at his cut, but he hasn't been unbeaten since the cut so I guess it was justified. Still love watching this guy fight, and I think he has an account on BE so he interacts with the fans which is always baller. In short WAR SAUNDERS

Killa-B liked him since Tuf, wish he could have stayed in the UFC. IMO should have never called out Jon Fitch because getting Fitch'd is never good.lol
