Former Bellator light heavyweight champion Phil Davis is set to take on Vadim Nemkov on November 15 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Davis (19-4-1NC) has gone 6-1 since jumping from the UFC over to Bellator in 2015. Davis' sole loss since making the move to Bellator was to Ryan Bader via split decision in June of last year. That close contest resulted in Davis dropping the Bellator light heavyweight championship to Bader. Since losing the title, Davis has won back-to-back fights over Leonardo Leite and Linton Vassell.

Nemkov (9-2) is currently riding a four-fight win streak. He most recently defeated former Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary via third-round TKO in February.
