Bellator 289 Preview
Bellator 289 has a great card in store for the fans, headlined by two title fights. Bellator has been putting on exciting fights all year long, and this card seems to be no different. The organization has a lot of talent, including up-and-coming talent and has done a good job of grooming their own talent and picking up talent where they feel like another organization messed up by not bringing them back. Bellator has done such a great job that their organization, led by Scott Coker, has been able to put on great fights for their fans. Let’s get into some of the fights that will go down at Bellator 289!
Raufeon Stots, who is the Bellator interim bantamweight champion, will take on Danny Sabatello in what should be a great fight. Stots is 18-1 in his professional career, while his opponent, Sabatello, is 13-1. Stots has finished two of his last six fights and has been quite an exciting fighter inside the cage. Sabatello has 1 finish in his last 6 fights and is also an exciting fighter himself. The two have had a lot of things to say to each other and do not seem fond of each other. This fight between these two warriors should not disappoint and should be a spectacle from start to finish, to say the least.
Bellator also has Liz Carmouche, a longtime veteran of the sport, and Bellator's women's flyweight champion taking on Juliana Velasquez in what should also be a very competitive fight. Carmouche is 17-7 in her career and has fought tons of great female fighters in the world, while her opponent, Vasquez, is 12-1 with her only loss being a TKO loss to Carmouche. Velasquez will be coming for revenge, and whether or not she will get it remains to be seen.
Patchy Mix will also be fighting Magomed Magomedov in a semi-final match. Mix is 16-1 and Magomedov is 19-2, and both fighters are very game opponents. Some of the other names to watch are Dalton Rosta, Anthony Adams, Cody Law, Chris Lencioni, Pat Downey, and Randi Field. Tune in Friday, December 9th for Bellator 289! I can promise you, you don’t want to miss it. There are tons of exciting fights with tons of up-and-coming talent as well.
