Bellator MMA has postponed all three of his May events due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s the organization’s statement on the case:
“The organization will continue to monitor the situation closely and fully intends to reschedule the events as soon as possible,” the statement read. “As always, the health and safety of our athletes, fans, partners, and staff remains our top priority. We appreciate the understanding and patience of everyone involved during this incredibly difficult time.”
Bellator 242, scheduled for May 9 in San Jose, California, has been postponed, along with Bellator London on May 16 and Bellator 243 on May 29 in Temecula, California.
The Bellator 242 was arguably Bellator’s biggest event with two championship belts being put on the line – Ryan Bader vs. Vadim Nemkov for the light heavyweight title, and Douglas Lima vs. Gegard Mousasi for the vacant middleweight title.
There is still no information about the June events.
