Bellator 263 takes place this Saturday, July 31 at The Forum in Los Angeles, California — and the main event is one of the biggest in promotional history.
The featherweight grand prix finale finally arrives in that headliner, with champion Patricio Pitbull putting his title on the line opposite the heretofore undefeated A.J. McKee. A win for Pitbull would further establish his legacy, as he would have cleared the tournament defending the title every step of the way.
A win for McKee, meanwhile, would cement his as the hottest young talent in the game, if that wasn’t set in stone already.
And a win for either man would see $1,000,000 dollars in prize money headed their way.
Ahead of the event, the headliners sat down at the Bellator 263 pre-fight press conference on Thursday, for one last promotional push. The festivities will get underway at 4PM ET — tune in for the live stream above. The full card as it stands breaks down as follows:
