Bellator MMA has revealed broadcast plans for its first international event on April 16.
Bellator 152 will be held at the Pala Alpitour in Torino, Italy, and the debut of Bellator Kickboxing will occur earlier in the evening at the same venue, but American fight fans will see the events on separate dates.
Bellator 152 will air April 16 on Spike TV, but it will be broadcast on tape delay at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Bellator Kickboxing won’t be seen on stateside television until April 22 at 11 p.m. ET, immediately following the telecast of Bellator 153. Bellator officials confirmed that there are no plans to live-stream the events.
Bellator 152 will be headlined by a lightweight scrap between Patricky Freire and Derek Campos. Also on the marquee will be a light heavyweight clash between Alessio Sakara and Brian Rogers, as well as a pair of featherweight bouts featuring A.J. McKee versus Danilo Belluardo and Daniele Miceli against Daniele Scatizzi.
Bellator Kickboxing will be anchored by fan-favorite striker Melvin Manhoef going toe-to-toe with Alexandru Negrea. Raymond Daniels, Denise Kielholtz and Kevin Ross will also compete on the bill, though their opponents haven’t been announced yet.
