In his first event in just over five months, Bellator makes his comeback with one of the most engaging fights his Bantamweight division can offer. The recognized in UFC, Sergio Pettis, will fulfill his second presentation in the organization chaired by Scott Coker, when he measures Ricky Bandejas. This will be in the contest that will headline the Bellator 244 at the Mohegan Sun Casino. In the co-star, ex-Titan FC welterweight champion Jason Jackson will host ex-UFC with a Strikeforce past, Jordan Mean.
Aztec Erik “Goyito” Pérez, who was not on this list, already has his next confirmed fight in Bellator MMA. He will face the Canadian Josh Hill in Bellator 244. The announcement was made during the broadcast of Entre Rounds this Tuesday afternoon. He will try to get his first victory within the Viacom organization, or at least leave a good image to continue climbing in Mixed Martial Arts. In his debut, he was knocked out by Toby Misech in Bellator 235.
That loss ended a streak of 5 wins and undefeated since 2015. Erik is training at Alliance MMA and ready to prove that his training has taken him to another level. Hill comes from winning on his debut in the organization, where he beat Vinicius Zani in Bellator 239. The Canadian appears in search of his fourth consecutive victory and is known for his balance both standing and on the mat. In turn, it has 4 wins by KO / TKO and 4 finishes. Bellator 244 will take place next August 21 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.
