All fighters made weight for tomorrow’s Bellator 223 and Bellator London cards, featuring Gegard Mousasi vs. Rafael Lovato Jr. for the promotion’s middleweight title.
Bellator MMA returns to London, England on Saturday with a double card of sorts. Bellator 223 and Bellator London are being billed separately, with the 223 portion of the card airing on Paramount in North America, and the Bellator: London bouts airing on Channel 5 in the UK. Any way you slice it, however, it’s a promising card with a couple of hotly anticipated fights. In the main event, Gegard Mousasi defends his title against undefeated jiu-jitsu master Rafael Lovato Jr.
Paul Daley, meanwhile, is set to return on home turf, taking on fellow UFC alum Erick Silva. The Brazilian will be looking to bounce back from a loss in his promotional debut.
Also on the card(s), names like James Gallagher, Melvin Manhoef, and Aaron Chalmers.
