On Friday, April 6, Bellator MMA hosted its 196th event from the BOK Hall in Budapest, Hungary. The event preceded Bellator Kickboxing 9 from the same venue.
In the night’s main event, former welterweight title challenger Benson Henderson took on fellow UFC veteran Roger Huerta in a lightweight contest. Arizona’s Henderson had fallen on tough times since joining Bellator, losing three of his last four, including back-to-back decision losses to Patricky Freire and Michael Chandler. The 34-year-old Huerta returned to the promotion for the first time since 2010.
