Stots, who enters this fight having won 10 straight and a sole pro loss on his record, is undefeated in the Bellator cage. Stots's tournament path thus far has seen him knock out former champ Juan Archuleta in the quarterfinals at Bellator 279 to win the interim title before retaining it with a decision win over Danny Sabatello at Bellator 289.
At the same events, respectively, Mix advanced to the finals with a decision win over former champ Kyoji Horiguchi and a technical submission of Magomed Magomedmov.
