LOS ANGELES — BELLATOR MMA’s reigning Welterweight World Champion Yaroslav Amosov (27-0) kept his sport-leading unbeaten streak intact after a shutout victory over Logan Storley (14-2) in front of a packed crowd inside Dublin, Ireland’s 3Arena. Despite the weight of his entire nation on his shoulders, Amosov delivered a career-defining performance and shined brightly in his return to the BELLATOR cage after the highly publicized defense of his home country of Ukraine. With the win, Amosov becomes the No. 3-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in BELLATOR.
In the co-main event, Canada’s Jeremy Kennedy (19-3) will add another tick to the tattoo on his rib cage after defeating SBG’s Pedro Carvalho, becoming the No. 2-ranked featherweight in the process.
BELLATOR MMA returns to the SAP Center in San Jose, CA on Friday, March 10 with the launch of the highly anticipated one-million-dollar BELLATOR Lightweight World Grand Prix, where in the main event, newly crowned Lightweight World Champion and No. 7 pound-for-pound talent Usman Nurmagomedov (16-0) will defend his belt against former UFC Lightweight Champion and No. 3-ranked Benson Henderson (30-11). Meanwhile, another thrilling opening round contest serves as the co-main event, as No. 2-ranked knockout artist Tofiq Musayev (20-4) clashes with No. 4-ranked Alexander Shabliy (22-3).
