Two hot prospects from either side of the Atlantic are set for action in separate bouts when Bellator makes its return to Thackerville, Okla., for Bellator 224. Promotion officials confirmed to MMA Junkie that former NCAA Division I wrestling standout and welterweight contender Ed Ruth will face off against Japanese veteran Kiichi Kunimoto on July 12 at the WinStar Casino and Resort. The news was first reported by Canadian outlet theScore . Ruth (6-1 MMA, 6-1 BMMA) was submitted by Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Neiman Gracie in the quarterfinals of the welterweight grand prix last December at Bellator 213. It was the 28-year-old Ruth’s first loss of his professional career after a string of impressive performances inside the Bellator cage
