The Bellator MMA expansion into Europe will begin on Saturday, February 9 with Bellator Europe 1, which features a previously reported main event of Patricky Pitbull facing Ryan Scope.
A full card, with the exception of one fighter, has been announced for this show according to MMA Junkie, which will air live on the Bellator App. The co-main event of the evening is going to be a welterweight division bout as reality TV show star Aaron Chalmers faces an opponent to be announced.
Other notables on the card include UFC veterans James Mulheron (who faces Arunas Andriuskevicus), Jim Wallhead (who faces Lewis Long) and Colin Fletcher (who faces Mehrdad Janzemini). The preliminary card is also expected to air live on the Bellator App as well, but start time for the preliminary card and main card have yet to be announced.
This is expected to be the first of many events for Bellator MMA in Europe, as the promotion is working to expand their presence in the country.
Bellator MMA Europe 1 is taking place on Saturday, February 9 from the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England with Patricky Pitbull and Ryan Scope headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on the Bellator App.
