Darryl Cobb 7-3 vs. Giva Santana 16-1 is set to take place live on MTV2. The two fighters will sqaure off October 8th, in Miami, OK., under the Bellator banner. Darryl took the fight on 2 weeks notice and knows he is a huge underdog; a role Cobb hasn’t played before. Cobb knows it is a huge step up in competition, and a big opportunity to showcase his stand up vs. Giva’s ground game.
