Bellator 223/London Live Results

After a successful weekend in New York City for Bellator 222, Scott Coker and company go across the pond for Bellator London/223. Gegard Mousasi will look to defend his Bellator Middleweight Championship for the second time against Rafael Lovato Jr. inside the SEE Arena in London, England.

Mousasi (45-6-2) last fought in September, beating Welterweight Champion Rory MacDonald at Bellator 206 to retain his belt. On an eight-fight win streak and 3-0 in Bellator, “The Armenian Assasin”  was supposed to defend his title in January. He pulled out in December due to a back injury. Now healthy, he will look to continue his dominant run which can lead to more opportunities.

A patient man, Rafael Lovato Jr. (9-0) also had his last fight in September, beating John Salter via submission at Bellator 205. A Jiu-Jitsu medalist, the 35-year old has won six fights via submission. The Bellator London title fight will be taking place on the Bellator app at 5 p.m. ET.

The event in London has a few more matches taking place, but not all at the same time. Bellator 223 will feature Paul Daley looking to return to form as he faces Erick Silva while the young James Gallagher will look to impress once again against Jeremiah Labiano. These fights will be broadcasted at 9 p.m. ET on DAZN via tape delay.
