Bellator 254 kicks off shortly! Fans are in for an exciting night of fights tonight at the Mohegan Sun Arena. You can catch the prelims over at the CBS Sports website starting at 8:00 p.m. ET. The main card will start at 10:00 p.m. ET and will be available to watch on the CBS Sports Network.
This card features many exciting prospects, with nine of the fighters coming into the card with undefeated records. All five of the prelim fights will see an undefeated fighter attempting to keep that zero in the loss column. Grant Neal is looking to keep his impressive start going with his eyes set on a light heavyweight title fight in the near future. Magomed Magomedov and Matheus Mattos only have one loss each, and both fighters will be giving it their all to ensure that the one doesn’t turn into a two. Ilima-Lei Macfarlane and Juliana Velasquez clash for the Flyweight World Title, with neither fighter having suffered a defeat before.
