Top MMA News has learned that Nordine Taleb will now face Matt MacGrath at Bellator 67 this weekend at Casino Rama, Ontario in an all-Canadian matchup.

Taleb (7-1) is looking for his second consecutive win in Bellator action after dominating Matt Secor at Bellator 64. The Tristar fighter was due to fight George Lockhart at a 176 lb catchweight, but Lockhart had to pull out of the fight.  Nordine Taleb is on a six fight win streak that includes a TKO victory over Pete Sell.

Lockhart’s shoes will be filled by Matt MacGrath (10-7).  MacGrath was previously set to face Jordan Beecroft at Elite 1 in Moncton until Beecroft pulled out due to injury a week prior to the fight.  MacGrath, who has beaten such as Dean Amasinger and Ryan Machan, will look to put a two fight losing streak to rest with a win over Taleb.
