Bellator MMA returns to Mohegan Sun Arena with the highly-anticipated rematch between Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson the main event of the night.

The first fight between Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson was a memorable back-and-forth showdown that saw Chandler’s hand raised via split decision. Over three years has passed since that night and both men have vowed to leave no doubt about the outcome this time around.

The co-main event features a collision between two hard-hitting heavyweights – Matt Mitrione vs Tim Johnson. Heavyweight fan-favourite Mitrione aims to take a big step forward in the title picture following a pair of highly-unusual bouts with Sergei Kharitonov in 2019, but standing in his way is Johnson, who comes off an impressive win over top-rated prospect Tyrell Fortune.

Plus Georgi Karakhanyan takes on Myles Jury in a lightweight feature fight and Sabah Homasi faces Curtis Millender.
