After a tricky start to life as a Bellator heavyweight, Timothy Johnson has bounced back in style. Now he’s looking to make it three wins in a row by avenging the man who handed him his first loss inside the Bellator cage.
Johnson (14-6 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) will take on French contender Cheick Kongo (30-10-2 MMA, 12-2 BMMA) in the main event of Bellator Europe 10, where he will look to even the score with the man who finished him with strikes in just 68 seconds at Bellator 208 back in October 2018. He even referenced their first meeting with a smile as he admitted that he’d set the bar low for him to improve in the rematch.

Bellator Europe 10 takes place Saturday at Accor Arena in Paris, France. The event streams live on MMA Junkie.
