On Friday, July 17, Bellator MMA hosted its 140th event from the Mohegan Sun Arena inUncasville, Conn.
The main event featured a welterweight title fight between champion Douglas Lima and former title challenger Andrey Koreshkov. Lima looked to make his first title defense. He captured the belt with a second-round TKO of Rick Hawn last April. Lima had only tasted defeat once since 2009, at the hands of Ben Askren. Like Lima, Koreshkov had also fallen short against Askren; his only career loss. The Russian rebounded with four straight wins and his second tournament title to earn a shot at Lima.
In the co-main event of the evening, wrestling stalwarts Paul Bradley and Chris Honeycutt locked horns in a welterweight match-up.
Also on the main card, British striking specialists Michael Page and Paul Daley took on Rudy Bears and Dennis Olson, respectively.
The event kicked off Friday with a preliminary card stream on Spike.com at 7 p.m. ET. The five-fight main card followed at 9 p.m ET on Spike.
