Once again, Bellator MMA was storming London, this time with Bellator 223 — with the prelim action kicking off early.
Bellator MMA was on the other side of the pond Saturday, back in London, England once again. A double-bill, promoted as both Bellator 223 and Bellator London looked set to bring lots of action, including Gegard Mousasi vs. Rafael Lovato Jr., and Paul Daley vs. Erick Silva.
Before all that, however, there was a good chunk of preliminary card action for fight fans to consume. Among the names to keep an eye on, Bellator Kickboxing standout Denise Kielholtz, back on the MMA side of things once again. Oliver Enkamp was making his Bellator debut after bouncing out of the UFC. And women’s flyweights Kate Jackson and Lena Ovchynnikova were set to collide.
The prelims kick off at 11:30AM ET – live stream not available at this time
