This one might be a tough sell, and on a weekend when we have Kattar/Allen and the Paul/Silva fights going on this one will likely be relegated to the bin. Still, if you have any interest in European or UK MMA there's stuff here to like...

The main card looks like a UK Bellator show, all the Italian interest is down on the prelims. 

Main Card:

Adam Piccolotti vs. Mansour Barnaoui

Fabian Edwards vs. Charlie Ward

Saul Rogers vs. Tim Wilde

Justin Gonzalez vs. Andrew Fisher


Sarvadzhon Khamidov vs. Jose Maria Tome

Luke Trainer vs. Lucas Alsina

Davy Gallon vs. Daniele Scatizzi

Simon Biyong vs. Dragos Zubco

Alfie Davis vs. Thibault Gouti 

Chiara Penco vs. Manuela Marconetto 

Yves Landi vs. Walter Cogliandro

Costello Van Steenis vs. Kamil Oniszczuk

Nicolo Solli vs. Bourama Camara 

Steven Hill vs. Andrea Fusi

Denis Stojnic vs. Oleg Popov

Be interested to see how this does crowd wise, because the Italian's go batshit for their own guys, but all the Italian interest is earlier in the night. The place may empty out 😄

I'm probably gonna dip in mid-prelims but there is some stuff I wanna see here. 

The debut of Mansour Barnaoui is a long time coming. Barnaoui is one of those guys that really started to get a reputation outside of the UFC and got 'just how good is this guy' talk about him. He was a BAMMA champ over here, then cleaned up in Road FC going 6-0 with 6 finishes. Not 100% sure why he hasn't fought since 2019, but he's thrown straight into a big spot here. 

Fabian Edwards going in against Charlie Edwards after KO'ing Lyoto Machida feels like a huge step backwards, weird Bellator Europe matchmaking there. If it was in Ireland i'd get it.
