On Saturday, Sept. 23, Bellator MMA will host its 183rd event from the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.
In the night’s main event, former lightweight title challenger Benson Henderson clashes with the other “Pitbull” brother, Patricky Freire. Henderson fought Patricio Freire at Bellator 160 last year, winning by TKO after the Brazilian suffered a leg injury. Henderson then challenged Michael Chandler for the title, but fell by decision. Patricky enters the contest on the heels of a second-round knockout victory over Josh Thomson at Bellator 172 in February. Like Henderson, he came up short in his prior title conquest against Chandler.
Also on the card, England’s Paul Daley returns to action against fellow striking stalwart Lorenz Larkin, and heavyweight Roy Nelson makes his promotional debut against Javy Ayala.
The action kicks off Friday with a live preliminary card stream above at 7 p.m. ET. The night’s main card airs live on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
