Many fights have recently joined the lineup of Bellator’s events in July. Here’s a fast roundup of all that has been thrown on the cards.
Five Fights Join Bellator’s July 16th Lineup
There have been five new matchups to join Bellator 262, which is set to take place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, USA.
Returning just two months after he scored his first stoppage win in Bellator, Johnny Eblen will get back into the cage to fight Travis Davis. Eblen is undefeated as a pro with four wins in Bellator. Davis will be making his promotional debut on a two-fight winning streak.
Both looking to bounce back from losing their promotional debut earlier this year, bantamweights Matheus Mattos and Cee Jay Hamilton will meet at Bellator 262.
Fighting for the fourth win in his rookie year as a pro, Cody Law will meet Bellator newcomer Theodore Macuka. Law scored his last win in April, defeating Nathan Ghareeb on scorecards. Macuka will be making his first appearance since winning his pro debut in 2019.
Attempting to continue his career-long streak of finish wins, undefeated welterweight Roman Faraldo will face John Ramirez. Ramirez is being brought into the promotion after snapping a four-fight losing streak earlier this year.
After an explosive 29-second finish win in her Bellator debut earlier this year, Diana Avsaragova will return against Gabriella Gulfin.
