Bellator is in Chicago for its next event Bellator 301, which features a pair of championship clashes. In the headliner, welterweight champ Yaroslav Amosov goes for his second defense against Jason Jackson, who earned his championship opportunity with six straight wins that include decisions against Benson Henderson, Paul Daley and Douglas Lima. The ‘Ass-Kicking Machine’ faces quite a challenge, as Amosov has yet to taste defeat. In his most recent appearance, ‘Dynamo’ defended and unified the Bellator World Championship with a decision against Logan Storley.
The co-headliner sees Bantamweight champ Sergio Pettis attempt to unify titles with interim champ Patchy Mix. After more than a year away due to an ACL injury, Pettis returned at Bellator 297, where he successfully defended his title against Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire via decision this past June. As for Mix, he started his 2023 off winning the Bellator Bantamweight World Grand Prix with a first-round finish of Raufeon Stots.
