Bellator 289 Media Day

By Jose Camachito Rivera.

The World Grand Prix Semi Finals for Bellator MMA #289 is to take place this coming Friday Dec 9th at The Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville Connecticut, but the excitement took place on Wednesday at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in Norwich Ct. where the fighters were available to the media in a press conference that was so entertaining that it definitely caused a stir in what’s coming on fight night.

There are two title fights scheduled and not to mention the WGP Semi Finals match between Patchy Mix the #2 Bellator bantamweight versus Magomed Magomedov the #4 Bellator bantamweight, the females on the card are no strangers to the bright lights.

In one of the title fights Bellator Flyweight World Champion Liz Carmouche will take on Brazilian sensation Juliana Velasquez the #1 ranked Bellator flyweight in the world, this is the second time they see each other in the cage as in controversial fashion at Bellator #278 the former marine Carmouche took the match and was named The Champion by earning a fourth round TKO stoppage. 

The other title fight pins Danny Sabatello the #6 ranked bantamweight in the world against Raufeon Stots the interim Bellator Bantamweight World Champion in a fight where it’s no secret how much these two fighters dislike each other so it should be an epic battle for sure.

Ex Wrestler Pat Downey the third a Bellator Middleweight presenting himself in his only second MMA fight (1-0) takes on the #5 Bellator Middleweight in the world Dalton Rosta, this match is one to definitely keep an eye on as Downey even being short in MMA experience thinks his experience in the square circle is sure to give the more seasoned Rosta problems.

The weigh in for Bellator MMA #289 is on Thursday Dec 8th and fight night will be on Friday Dec 9th at The Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville Ct. With the main events starting at 9pm airing on Show Time.
