2 Title Fights Set; 1 Fighter Heavy

Published:



Bellator
MMA returns for its first event since being purchased by the

Professional Fighters League.

The
Bellator 302 main event will see Corey Anderson take on Karl
Moore for the vacant light heavyweight championship. Both men
weighed 204.6 pounds for the title fight. Additionally,
featherweight king Patricio Freire will put his belt on the line
against Jeremy Kennedy in the co-main event after both weighed 145
pounds on the dot. Only one fighter missed weight as Vikas Singh
Ruhil came in one pound over the featherweight limit for his prelim
fight against Nathan Kelly.

“Overtime” is looking to claim his first title after coming up
short in 2022 against Vadim Nemkov. Since then, Anderson (17-6, 1
NC) has picked up a split decision win over Phil Davis. Looking to
derail Anderson’s attempt at glory is Ireland’s Moore (12-2), who
is riding a four-fight win streak inside the promotion. While three
wins have been via decision, the Belfast native also holds a face
crank submission win over Karl Albrektsson.
