Bellator MMA wraps up its bantamweight grand prix at Bellator 295, night two of it’s annual two-show stint in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Interim gold is on the line in the finale, plus a million dollars to the winner of the grand prix, with Raufeon Stots and Patchy Mix throwing down for five rounds or less. Stots defeated ex-champ Juan Archuleta and trash-talker extraordinaire Danny Sabatello to make it to the final, while Mix made his way past Kyoji Horiguchi and Magomed Magomedov.
Both fighters will start the night with just a single loss to their name, and are legitimately among the best 135lb fighters on the planet, regardless of promotion, making the Bellator 295 main event must-see TV.
In the co-main event, what has been seen as an unofficial title eliminator finds Ilima-Lei Macfarlane pursuing one last title run opposite Kana Watanabe.
Full results from Bellator 295’s weigh-in, going down Friday morning, can be found below.
A last-minute cancellation hit Bellator 295 shortly before weigh-ins, as Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Ray Borg was waved off. A second cancellation hit with weigh-ins already underway, with Keoni Diggs. vs. Weber Almeida falling through, per a report by MMA Junkie.
