On Friday, July 24, Bellator MMA returned from a four-month layoff due to COVID-19 to host its 242nd event from the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.
In the night’s main event, bantamweight finisher Ricky Bandejas squared off with UFC veteran Sergio Pettis. Bandejas entered the headlining affair on the heels of back-to-back knockouts. Nine of the 28-year-old’s 13 wins have come inside the distance. Milwaukee’s Pettis made a successful Bellator debut in January, choking Alfred Khashakyan unconscious inside the first round.
After three rounds, Pettis won all rounds on all scorecards to take an easy victory.
