Bellator 80 lineup set, Brett Cooper vs. Darryl Cobb completes main card

The fight card is set for next week's Bellator 80 event.

The event features former featherweight champion Joe Warren (7-3 MMA, 5-2 BFC) vs. Owen Evinger (7-3 MMA, 0-2 BFC) in the headliner, as all as two tournament bouts.

A middleweight bout between Brett Cooper (16-7 MMA, 3-2 BFC) and Darryl Cobb (5-5 MMA, 0-1 BFC) rounds out the MTV2-televised main card.

Bellator 80 takes place Nov. 9 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. The MTV2-televised main card follows prelims on Spike.com.

Cooper is on a 5-2 run, which includes recent Bellator victories over Valdir Araujo and Jared Hess. The only loss during the stretch came via decision to notable Alexander Shlemenko.

Cobb, meanwhile, opened his career with a 5-1 mark, which included a pair of Strikeforce victories. However, he's since lost four straight fights and is winless since April 2010.

The Season 7 tournament semifinals include featherweights Rad Martinez (13-2 MMA, 3-0 BFC) vs. Wagnney Fabiano (15-3 MMA, 1-0 BFC) and heavyweights Vinicius Queiroz (6-2 MMA, 1-0 BFC) vs. Alexander Volkov (17-3 MMA, 1-0 BFC).
