Skibinski and Graves Set to Rematch at Bellator 75


Jason Graves vs. Rafal Skibinski

Rafal Skibinski and Jason Graves will fight each other for a second time at Bellator 75 on October 5th, according to a source close to the fighters.

Skibinski and Graves fought at XFO 43 at the Copernicus Center in Chicago in April. It was a wild fight that featured a wild finish.

Graves came out firing and dropped Skibinski within the first :10 of the fight. Graves almost finished him, but Skibinski survived.

Graves got full mount on Skibinski and went to work. He looked up at the ref as if to tell him he should stop it, but then Skibinski swept him. Graves ends up getting cut and the ref stopped the action to bring in the doctor, who stopped the fight.

It was an interesting call as the cut was underneath Graves’ eye, and most likely could have continued. But Skibinski got the win via doctor stoppage, at 2:13 of round 1. Now the two will rematch at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond.

Graves just fought at Flawless FC and lost to Ryan Dickson, while Skibinski hasn’t fought since the win at XFO 43.
