Bellator's new home on CBS Sports Network seems to be sticking with the pattern of holding events on Thursdays.

The prelims stream at 6 PM ET here: and on the Bellator YouTube channel:​h?v=wccaLJ​Cgk5o

The middleweight title has been vacant since June 2019 when Rafael Lovato, Jr. was diagnosed with cerebral cavernoma and had to retire, leaving the title vacant.  Mousasi had lost the title to Lovato in May 2018.  Lima has been welterweight champ three times since 2014, with his current title reign starting a year ago.

There's actually some good fights with lesser-known names further down the card.  (But also, since it's Bellator, there's pro wrasslin' Jake "Jack Swagger" Hager vs Some Random Guy from the local circuit.  Hager's last fight was a no contest when he landed two nut shots in the first two minutes of the first round and his opponent couldn't continue)

Unfortunately, two fights were scratched earlier today, leaving eight.

Veta Arteaga vs Desiree Yanez and Nick Newell vs Zach Zane were cancelled.  Reports are that Arteaga and Newell were not cleared by the commission to fight.  Arteaga later said that she had tested positive for COVID.  No word on why Newell wasn't cleared, but a positive COVID test is a possibility, since he weighed in just fine yesterday.

Bat soup was a bad choice

Hard to believe it wasn't that long ago that Gegard was in line for a shot at the UFC MW title.

that early spurt emptied Johnson's gas

10-9 Hager

10-9 Hager  although he got hurt late   20-18
2020-10-29 7:40:17 PM  
he got all of those balls
2020-10-29 7:43:13 PM  
10-9 Hager  30-27   pretty close rounds though

If a 40 year old unknown gave Hager all he could handle, there are several on the roster who would murder him
2020-10-29 7:45:40 PM  
split decision for Hager

Just getting home.  A three fight main card?  COVID strikes again?

BadJazz: Just getting home.  A three fight main card?  COVID strikes again?

Bellator often does stupid stuff.  I think it was always scheduled for three fights tonight.  A few dropped for Covid and made the prelims start later, though (and moved this fight to the main card)
2020-10-29 8:21:04 PM  
I had expected Rosta to gas by now, but he's been pacing himself better.
2020-10-29 8:22:23 PM  
10-9 Rosta  20-18
2020-10-29 8:26:28 PM  
I see now that Jake Hager fought again.  Did Hornswoggle run interference to steal the win?
