European MMA star Cedric Doumbe is back!

After a weird and debated stoppage loss against Baysangur Chamsoudinov, Doumbe will get a chance to rebound in front of his home fans as he takes on Derek Anderson at Accor Arena in Paris.

The 34-year-old Bellator veteran Anderson has won three out of his past four fights but hasn’t fought since a TKO loss to Michael Page three years ago.

After scoring a 9-second knockout of Jordan Zebo in his sensational promotional debut in September last year, he lost to Chamsoudinov on March 7.
