On Saturday, Feb. 18, Bellator MMA will host its 172nd event from the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.
The card was slated to be headlined by the promotional debut of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko against UFC veteran Matt Mitrione. However, just hours before the bout, Mitrione fell ill and the bout was canceled.
As a result, the co-main event between veteran lightweight Josh Thomson and Brazilian Patricky “Pitbull” Freire has been elevated to the night’s top billing.
The card also features Cheick Kongo vs. Oli Thompson, and the promotional debut of Josh Koscheck.
The action kicks off Saturday with a live preliminary card stream above at 7 p.m. ET. The night’s main card airs on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
