Bellator MMA returned to Temecula, CA on Friday night for Bellator 293, featuring a heavyweight clash between Marcelo Golm and Daniel James atop the card.
In addition to those ranked heavyweights, what felt like a women’s featherweight title eliminator anchored the co-main event, with Cat Zingano taking on Leah McCourt. While there had been talk of an interim title being attached to the fight, that never materialized, though champ Cris Cyborg is yet to sign a new deal with the organization.
Also in action, top prospects including Lance Gibson Jr., Lucas Brennan, Sullivan Cauley and more.
Bellator 293 takes place at the Pechanga Resort and Casino on Friday, March 31, 2023, with the main card airing live on Showtime in the U.S. following online prelims (which you can stream above). Where available, the main card streams below; full results can also be found below.
