Bellator 265: Kongo vs. Kharitonov Live Stream and Results


Cheick Kongo and Sergei Kharitonov comprised the main event of Bellator 265 on Friday. But the more important fight was arguably the South Dakota card’s co-main event. Or well, it was right up until it wasn’t.

The heavyweight headliner promised fireworks, to be certain. But the co-feature saw Jay Jay Wilson and Adam Borics face off in a legitimate featherweight title eliminator. With true number one contender’s fights few and far between in modern MMA, Bellator had bucked the trend and promised the winner of Borics vs. Wilson a title shot.

Just one problem: at Thursday’s official weigh-in, Wilson blew weight. For the third time in his professional career, Wilson was heavy for a fight. This time by 4.4lbs. The bout was cancelled, with Borics paid his show money.

Logan Storley’s fight with promotional newcomer Dante Schiro was promoted to the co-feature slot in its place.

Also on Friday’s card in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, undefeated bantamweight prospect Jornel Lugo faced Keith Lee in a catchweight affair, while local hero Logan Storley returned against newcomer Dante Schiro.
