Who Competes?

Long-time UFC fans will recognise former champions, such as Cris Cyborg, Gegard Mousasi, Yoel Romero, Anthony Johnson, and Ryan Bader, while for UK fans, the roster will feature homegrown talent including, Patricio Freire and Douglas Lima, a welterweight champion.

What’s different to Bellator and UFC?

The sport itself, mixed martial arts is exactly the same, but the way Bellator do things is slightly different to UFC. For instance, the cage has no flat walls, and is a complete circular structure, which means there is no way a fighter can cut off the cage and force the opponent into a tight spot.

 

This type of martial arts has had huge success with its grand prix tournaments, with the top eight fighters from a weight class being placed in brackets, with bouts taking place over the course of a year to decide the tournament champion.
