Bellator 260 Takes Place Live Tonight on Showtime

Bellator 260 will take place tonight on the Showtime Network in the “Fight Sphere” at The Mohegan Sun. 

The main event will feature welterweight champion Douglas Lima against the undefeated, Bellator MMA number one ranked welterweight Yaroslav Amosov. Amosov’s record is 25-0 and has picked up mostly decision victories since signing with Bellator MMA. His most recent, a split decision against number-five ranked Logan Storley at Bellator 252

Bellator 260 will also be the first live event that welcomes back fans to one of their shows in the Mohegan Sun Arena. A limited number of tickets starting at $60 was made available for fans to purchase through Bellator’s website and Ticketmaster. The arena normally seats 10,000 fans but as the sports world seems to be easing back to normal, like everyone else Bellator is doing so with caution. 

One fighter who will be watching the main event closely will be the number-two ranked Michael “Venom” Page, who not only said he missed fans at Bellator 258 but made it clear he would like a rematch with Lima after his most recent victory.
