Bellator 202 Finalizes Lineup
Bellator has released the final card for its return to the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma with Bellator 202.
Added to the main card is a opening heavyweight bout between Ernest James and Valentin Moldavsky, with both men looking to remain undefeated in the Bellator cage.
James made his pro debut at Bellator 184, with a first round stoppage of Rashemm Jones, a fellow debuting fighter. Across the cage is Moldavsky, who would go the distance in his Bellator debut at Bellator 181, where he would defeat Carl Seumanutafa.
Another heavyweight fight has been added to the evening’s preliminary card, as Jon Hill will hunt for his first win in Bellator against the debuting Rudy Schaffroth, and a welterweight clash between Fernando Gonzalez takes on the debuting Tyler Ingram.
These fights join a card featuring Julia Budd defending the women’s featherweight title against Talita Nogueira, and Eduardo Danta and Michael McDonald in what could be considered a contender fight for the Bantamweight title.
