Bellator MMA returns to the Sandord Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota this Friday for Bellator 298 — with a massive, 17-fight card planned topped by welterweight action.
In the main event, former interim title champ Logan Storley looks to bounce back from the second setback of his career, at the hands of Yaroslav Amosov, as he takes on the resilient Brennan Ward. In the co-feature, what could very well be a heavyweight title eliminator sees Valentin Moldavsky meet Steve Mowry for the second time.
The pair’s first meeting, a year ago, came to a premature end due to an accidental eye poke.
Plenty of young stars adorn Friday’s card, which also includes the return to James Gallagher after nearly two years out of action.
Weigh-ins for Bellator 298 get underway at 2AM ET — full results can be found below.
