Bellator’s historic first trip to France over the weekend saw Tim Johnson spoil Cheick Kongo’s homecoming, standout performances from Mads Burnell and Oliver Enkamp, and Michael Page collecting his fourth straight victory, albeit with less flash than usual.
Ultimately, the first major MMA event in the country, which just recently legalized the sport, was a success. And the promotion has already set its sights on a return date in 2021, once again to the Accor Arena in Paris.
