LOS ANGELES – BELLATOR MMA is adding five new highly anticipated bouts to the promotion’s historic BELLATOR 300 event taking place at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, Calif. on Saturday, October 7.
The preliminary portion of BELLATOR 300 now features a heavyweight fight between No. 9-ranked Davion Franklin (6-1) and undefeated BELLATOR newcomer, Slim Trabelsi (5-0). Additionally, Olympic Games silver medalist and No. 2-ranked Sara McMann (14-6) will make her sophomore appearance in BELLATOR when she takes on Ireland’s No. 5-ranked Leah McCourt (7-3) in a high-stakes women’s featherweight bout.
Elsewhere on the talent stacked preliminary card, Hawaii’s Kai Kamaka III (11-5-1) draws No. 10-ranked featherweight Henry Corrales (21-6), San Diego’s own Jena Bishop (5-0) returns to the BELLATOR cage when she takes on No. 10-ranked Ilara Joanne (11-7) in a women’s flyweight affair, and undefeated bantamweight prospect Bobby Seronio III (3-0) will face-off against Alberto Garcia (2-0) after a previously scheduled bout between the two was postponed*.*
These five bouts join the historic BELLATOR 300 card which features the one-million-dollar BELLATOR Lightweight World Grand Prix rolling on when incumbent champion Usman Nurmagomedov (17-0) puts his belt and undefeated record on the line against former champion and current No. 4-ranked Brent Primus (12-3) in a semifinal matchup. The top pound-for-pound female fighter in the world and current BELLATOR featherweight world champion Cris Cyborg (26-2, 1 NC) will face No. 1-ranked Cat Zingano (14-4) in what can best be described as a grudge match between two of the most recognizable athletes on the planet. BELLATOR’s reigning Heavyweight World Champion Ryan Bader (31-7, 1 NC) defends his belt in a rematch against No. 1-ranked Linton Vassell (23-8, 1 NC). Finally, two of San Diego’s top fighters collide as Liz Carmouche (19-7) defends her belt against former World Champion and No. 2-ranked Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (13-2) in a highly anticipated battle between two close friends and training partners.
Trained with her briefly when I moved to Boxing Club for a bit.
shit, woops! That was so long ago, it was San Diego Combat Academy. Or maybe it was Boxing club. FUCK IM OLD.
4 wmma fights!!
I always watch cyborgs fights tho
Maybe! I have to see if I’ll be home that weekend but drinks is drinks and fights is fights! I’ll hit you up yo!
Bet it early if odds are closer, odds will stretch late
Vassell is the reach/wildcard
+maybe don’t bet on chicks
Is this the last Bellator card? Did they find a buyer?
I think I read somewhere, they want to finish the Lightweight Tournament. Which means they will get to at least Bellator 302. Unless someone buys them.
Hell yeah, already got my tickets/am bringing the kids. They were less than half the price of the last UFC fight night that were here
If there’s a prop bet for your question, my money is on “yes, this is their last card”.
PFL is in talks to buy them, I hadn’t seen that news when I posted late last night.
“in what can best be described as a grudge match between two of the most recognizable athletes on the planet”
Thats a bit of a stretch…
