The Bellator MMA welterweight title will be on the line when champion Douglas Lima takes on Yaroslav Amosov in the main event of Bellator 260.
Both headliners had no problem making weight, and neither did most of the card, as every fighter hit their contracted weight. However, there was one fight that was scratched due to weight-related issues. Vanessa Porto was ruled not eligible to compete after weighing in, and her bout against Ilara Joanne is now off.
"The Phenom" is looking to bounce back after an unsuccessful bid for the promotion's middleweight strap against Gegard Mousasi. Lima (32-8) had won three straight fights prior to the setback. In that stretch, Lima prevailed by decision over Rory MacDonald, knocked out Michael Page in violent fashion and submitted Andrey Koreshkov. The Brazilian officially weighed 169.75 pounds for his latest title defense.
In his way will be the undefeated Amosov, who has been perfect through 25 fights. "Dynamo" most recently won a split decision over Logan Storley. On his way up, the Ukraine native notched notable wins over Mark Lemminger, Ed Ruth, David Rickels, Erick Silva and Gerald Harris. Amosov stepped on the scale at exactly 170 pounds.
Bellator 260's main card will air live on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Prelims will begin at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on the promotion's YouTube channel.
