Bellator 238 Weigh In Results
2020 is off to a belting start in the world of mixed martial arts. After Conor McGregor’s highly anticipated return last week, it’s now Bellator’s turn to come up with a stacked fight card for their first of the new decade. And on paper, the Bellator 238 lineup looks terrific.
Following the weigh ins and with all fighters set to head into battle, the main card is set to be topped off by the promotional debut of Cris “Cyborg” Justino, who will look to complete the grand slam of MMA championships by winning gold in a fourth different promotion against the dangerous, reigning Featherweight champ, Julia Budd. Nobody knows what kind of Cyborg to expect following a mentally challenging exit from the UFC, but regardless of the narratives, the Brazilian is one of the all time greats, and Budd will be looking to add to the legacy of her own by putting the former women’s MMA queen away on Saturday night.
Elsewhere on the main card, the second matchup of the Featherweight World Grand Prix quarter-finals is set to take place as the undefeated Adam Borics will go head to head with Darrion Caldwell. Stylistically it is a bout between two polar opposites, but sometimes all game plans go out the window in fights of this magnitude, with both fighters almost able to smell the gold and the $1 million prize.
The card will also feature two other Featherweight greats in Juan Archuleta and Henry Corrales in their first respective appearances since being eliminated from the FWGP. Former UFC contender Sergio Pettis will also fight under the Bellator banner for the very first time in the Bantamweight division against Alfred Khashakyan. Saturday night will also see the second professional MMA appearance for the promising former boxing champ Ava Knight, the return of Aaron Pico against the experienced Daniel Carey, and many more exciting matchups throughout the night.
