2-1 in under Bellator’s scrutiny, Straight Blast Gym mainstay, Mlambo dropped a high-profile knockout defeat against American Top Team staple, Ricky Bandejas at Bellator Dublin in February – in a rallying performance from the latter.
Making his first appearance under the Scott Coker’s led promotion banner, Tait holds a 10-5 professional record, adding to his win column with a second-round triangle win over Ayton De Paepe at Cage Warriors 111 last November.
Snapping a three-fight winning streak, talented all-rounder, Mlambo made a successful transition from Brave Combat Federation back in 2019 – scoring two consecutive wins with Bellator.

A former Cage Warriors, Cage Rage, Titan FC, and UCMMA mainstay, Tait offers an experienced challenger for the returning Mlambo. As well-rounded as his opponent, Tait has picked up ten professional victories, finishing each and every one with five knockouts and a further five submission successes.
