Bellator 237 – often referred to as Bellator Japan – is finally here!
In the main event, a star-studded battle of legends as Fedor Emelianenko takes on Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. The co-main sees promotional legend Michael Chandler giving Sidney Outlaw the biggest fight of his career at a catchweight of 160-pounds. Welterweight star Michael “Venom” Page will look to prove he is both flash and substance when he faces gritty Japanese wrestler Shinsho Anzai.
The six-fight main card will also feature three Bellator vs. RIZIN match-ups. Lorenz Larkin, Ilara Joanne, and Goiti Yamauchi represent Bellator MMA as Keita Nakamura, Kana Watanabe, and Daron Cruickshank will be representing RIZIN Fighting Federation.
The postlims are loaded as well and will feature eight RIZIN bouts, with full RIZIN rules. Sadly, these were confirmed just hours ago to be unwatchable outside of Japan. However, we will still be covering the fights here on The Body Lock MMA in real-time, so stay tuned.
Check out the full Bellator Japan results below. This includes the main card airing on DAZN and Paramount Network, as well as the postlim action that will air exclusively on SkyPerfecTV! and GYAO! in Japan.
