Bellator has some big fights coming up — and they plan to bring fans a preview of that on Monday. Bellator’s Spring and Summer 2020 Showcase is set to air live from the Viacom CBS headquarters at One Astor Plaza in New York City. On hand, some of the best the promotion has to offer, including Ryan Bader, Douglas Lima, A.J. McKee, Gegard Mousasi, James Gallagher, and Patricio Pitbull.
The names don’t stop there, but that should give you an idea of the talent on hand. First and foremost, Pitbull has a title fight lined up this coming Friday at Bellator 241. Part of the ongoing Bellator featherweight grand prix, Pitbull will face off against Pedro Carvalho (who will also be on hand for the showcase).
Ryan Bader, meanwhile, returns May 9 to defend his light heavyweight title against Vadim Nemkov. ‘Darth’ Bader was last seen in action against Cheick Kongo back in September — a heavyweight title fight that ended in a no contest after an eye poke rendered Kongo unable to continue.
Bader has not lost a fight since a 2016 meeting with Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson back in the UFC.
Tune in above for the full Bellator Spring and Summer 2020 Showcase press conference, which goes down at noon eastern time.
