We’re getting spoiled this weekend, MMA fans. With big shows from Bellator and PFL (as well as BKFC 26), Friday night’s combat sports schedule is loaded.
MMA Fighting’s Shaun Al-Shatti, Jed Meshew, and Alexander K. Lee set the table for the upcoming MMA smorgasbord by previewing Friday’s non-UFC slate, headlined by Gegard Mousasi’s latest title defense, the next stage of Bellator’s bantamweight grand prix, and one of the best fights PFL can currently make. Is Gegard Mousasi destined for another statement performance? Will Danny Sabatello actually back up his words? What’s going on with the bizarre saga between Cat Zingano and Cris Cyborg, and has former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis finally found his footing in PFL?
