Join us tonight on Bloody Elbow for results and play-by-play (main event) as Bellator 290 comes to the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California.
The headliner for the card is the retirement fight of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko. He will rematch Ryan Bader with the Bellator Heavyweight Championship up for grabs. Bader defeated Fedor in just 35 seconds in their first fight to claim the vacant title in early 2019, and he has held it ever since.
The co-main will be for the Bellator middleweight title, with Johnny Eblen defending against Anatoly Tokov.
This card is unique in the fact that the three-fight main card will air live on CBS and Paramount+. The eleven-fight main card will kick off at 6pm ET/3pm PT, and will be streamed on Bellator’s YouTube channel. The main card will kick off at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
