Sherdog.com confirmed with a promotion official on Monday that a
heavyweight clash pitting Tyrell
Fortune against Said Sowman and welterweight bout between
Anderson against Killys Mota
have been booked for the Nov. 4 lineup.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the matchups.

Connecticut, and is headlined by a light heavyweight duel between

eight consecutive triumphs.

outing with a stoppage of Bobby Brents
on Sept. 25. The American Top Team product is 6-1 as a pro, with
four of those triumphs coming inside the distance.

including a three-round verdict against Guilherme
Vasconcelos at Bellator 229 in October 2019.
