Bellator returns with a stacked fight event this Friday night that could shift a number of fighters across various divisions. Bellator 298 is the promotion's only offering for the month of August, and it has no shortage of action as the card has 17 fights scheduled to take place.
The main event of the evening will be a battle of the best welterweights on the Bellator roster as former interim welterweight champion, Logan 'Storm' Storley, goes up against Brennan 'Irish' Ward, who has had quite the comeback story. This high-stakes bout could provide the fighter who could be next to challenge for the 170-pound gold held by Yaroslav Amosov.
The co-main event will be an attempt at redemption in the heavyweight division. Valentin Moldavsky and Steve Mowry will meet in a rematch to their Bellator 284 match, which ended in a no contest. Now, the two run it back and look to have a sense of finality to their feud since that night.
The main card will feature five fights but will be preceded by a staggering 12 fights on the prelim card, which promises to deliver some explosive action for fight fans around the world.
This page will be updated live throughout the night.
