Bellator 243 returns to television to bring mixed martial arts fans some Friday night fights live from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
The main event features former lightweight world champions Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson who will be facing off in a highly-anticipated rematch. The first time the two men met on November 19, 2016, Chandler was able to score a controversial split-decision win. The rematch was initially set for New Year’s Eve at RIZIN 20 in Japan, but Henderson was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an injury suffered during training. Now, he will be looking to settle the score.
In the co-main event of the night, heavyweights Timothy Johnson and Matt Mitrione slug it out. The event also features Myles Jury vs. Georgi Karakhanyan, Sabah Homasi vs. Curtis Millender, and red hot prospect Valerie Loureda vs. Tara Graff.
