Bellator MMA returns to Dublin, Ireland this Saturday with a middleweight title fight capping off a big night planned for the 3Arena with Bellator 299.
That fight will see champ Johnny Eblen, having once again shifted nicknames, this time to “Pressure” (he was previously “Diamond Hands” and “The Human Cheat Code”), put his belt on the line against top contender Fabian Edwards. There’s a little bit of history at stake, with Edwards’ brother Leon holding UFC gold — a win for Fabian over the American Top Team standout could mark the first time brothers have both held gold in competing, top-tier promotions.
Also in action on Saturday, featherweight standout Aaron Pico taking on SBG Ireland’s Pedro Carvalho, Danish star Mads Burnell, and the hard-hitting fan fave Sabah Homasi.
Weigh-ins for Bellator 299 take place Friday in Dublin; check below for results.
