Bellator 97 is the greatest offering of MMA the promotion has held in the past two years. If you think any differently then I will gaslight you enough until you accept my perceptive on reality as truth. Go ahead, try. You already lost — now finish cleaning your kitchen, messy.
Michael Chandler, the guy that defeated Eddie Alvarez, will take on David Rickels and whatever caveman paraphernalia he will bring to the cage. To this day it’s still puzzling, nearly disrespectful, that Bellator continues to exert their energy and resources to continue litigation with Eddie Alvarez when the guy that beat Alvarez is sort of being swept under the rug.
In the second title fight of the night, Ben Askren will take on Andrey Koreshkov and someone’s undefeated MMA career will end. That is, unless it’s a draw — which would just be entirely too bizarre. King Mo vs. Jacob Noe will wrap up the light heavyweight tournament finals along with Vitaly Minakov vs. Ryan Martinez in a finals match for the heavyweight tournament. Phuket Top Team’s Anthony Leone will also take on Frank Baca in the bantamweight semi-finals. There’s even more goodness that I left out, solely because my fingers are tired of hammering at my keyboard. Feel free to check out the entire card here and watch the trailer for Bellator 97 below — or die. Just kidding about the dying part, you can still not watch it and die also. It’s your choice.
