You’d be forgiven for not realizing how good the Bellator 264 main card really is.
Of course there’s the middleweight title fight in the main event. Gegard Mousasi, one of the most decorated 185lb fighters in any promotion, takes on John Salter. Salter isn’t going to come out and trash talk, or do anything flashy, but his steady, workman-like performances have finally brought him to a shot at gold. His only loss in the promotion was to former champ Rafael Lovato.
Then, definitely under the radar is the return of former welterweight champ Andrey Koreshkov. The Russian has not competed for Bellator since 2019, and actually took a fight outside the promotion earlier this year, picking up a submission win. He’ll look to build on that against the always-game Sabah Homasi.
Remember Homasi’s war with Paul Daley? That was just four months ago. If he can put on another performance like that (and even better, come away with the win this time), fans will be leaping out of their seats.
Magomed Magomedov is also on the card, one of the most promising bantamweights in any promotion. He’s up against a top prospect in Raufeon Stots. Speaking of prospects, heavyweight Davion Franklin will also be in action.
