The promotion announced the lightweight pairing on Tuesday.
Bellator 183 takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and is
headlined by a lightweight clash between Benson
Henderson and Patricky
Freire. The main card airs on Spike at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
Additionally, Bellator Kickboxing 7 will also take place that
evening, with a card topped by a welterweight championship tilt
Ghajji and Raymond
Daniels. That event will be broadcast via tape delay on Spike
immediately following Bellator 184 on Oct. 6.
Piccolotti improved to 9-0 in his last promotional appearance, as
he took a unanimous decision over Brandon
Girtz at Bellator 165 on Nov. 19. The 28-year-old is now 5-0 in
Bellator, including three triumphs via submission.
Yamauchi, meanwhile, bounced back from a loss to Bubba
Jenkins at Bellator 151, to post consecutive first-round
submissions of Ryan
Couture and Valeriu
Mircea in his last two outings. The 24-year-old Japanese
fighter is 7-2 within the California-based organization and 21-3 as
a professional overall.
