Bellator MMA returned to the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Friday, with two big fights topping the Bellator 285 card.
In the main event, former UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson looked for his second straight win over former Bellator title challenger Peter Queally. A victory for either would push the winner closer to a title shot, with the belt on the line later this year between Patricky Pitbull and Usman Nurmagomedov.
In the co-main event, Yoel Romero was also looking for his second straight win, against another veteran in Melvin Manhoef. Both men retained knockout power, with the possibility of an explosive finish high.
Bellator 285 goes down live at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Friday, September 23, 2022. The preliminary card gets underway at 12:55PM ET, followed by the main card at 3:55PM.
