Bellator was back in the Inland Empire on Friday night with Bellator 229: Koreshkov vs. Larkin, with prelims streaming live online!
Bellator 229 went down Friday, back in Temecula at the Pechanga Casino and Resort. The main event saw a welterweight showdown the promotion had tried to put together before, with former champ Andrey Koreshkov taking on UFC and Strikeforce veteran Lorenz Larkin.
A win for either could put them within striking distance of the Rory MacDonald vs. Douglas Lima victor later in the month — although should Lima win that, it would be a hard sell to book a fourth fight with Koreshkov so soon.
Still, the card’s main event had title implications. It’s preliminary card, meanwhile, had a couple of key names, including Joey Davis, the Team Bodyshop prospect who was looking to keep his perfect record intact.
