Watch Bellator 280 Bader vs. Kongo 2 Preview
Bellator 280, taking place this weekend (Friday, May 6, 2022) in Paris, France, recently lost its light heavyweight main event. According to the promotion, Melvin Manhoef has pulled out of his exhibition fight against former UFC title challenger Yoel Romero as a result of injury.
Blame it on those home-invading idiots.
Taking his place is Alex Polizzi, winner of three straight wins and four of five overall inside the Bellator cage. Polizzi – ranked No. 7 in the division – was last seen defeating José Augusto Azevedo Barros at Bellator 276.
As for Romero, he will be looking to snap his four-fight losing streak and also get his first win with the Viacom-owned promotion after falling to Phil Davis in his Belaltor 266 debut. “Soldier of God” hasn’t tasted victory since he knocked out Luke Rockhold at UFC 221 back in 2018.
Bellator 280 will feature a heavyweight championship rematch between the king of the division, Ryan Bader, and fellow Octagon export Cheick Kongo. His first fight of 2019 was ruled a “No Contest” as a result of an unintentional eye poke. Also on the card, UFC veterans collide as Lorenz Larkin returns to fight Kyle Stewart in a middleweight affair.
