A welterweight division attraction has been added to Bellator 246 as Robson Gracie Jr. faces Billy Goff.
MMA Junkie first reported the bout.
Gracie Jr. (3-0-0) has spent his entire professional MMA career competing in Bellator, defeating the trio of Bryson Bolohao, Oscar Vera and Ameer Basheer. Gracie hasn’t competed in just about a year as his last professional MMA bout took place in November of 2019. Gracie Jr. has competed three times in his professional MMA career and all of those bouts ended by way of submission.
Goff (2-2-0) comes into the contest riding a two-fight losing streak and he hasn’t picked up a win in almost two years.

Goff previously challenged for the Reality Fighting welterweight title, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Kemran Lachinov.
