LOS ANGELES – BELLATOR MMA returns to “The Windy City” of Chicago this Friday, Nov. 17, for the incredibly stacked BELLATOR 301: Amosov vs. Jackson event featuring 16 fights, including two world title fights and a Lightweight World Grand Prix Semifinals matchup. The event takes place at the Wintrust Arena and will air live on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
The heavyweight fight between Daniel James (15-7-1) and Ali Isaev (9-0-1), as well as the flyweight matchup between Juliana Velasquez (12-2) and Paula Cristina (6-2) have both been canceled.
In the evening’s main event, undefeated welterweight kingpin Yaroslav Amosov (27-0) steps back into the BELLATOR cage for the second time in 2023 when he squares off against Jamaica’s fighting pride and No. 2-ranked contender Jason Jackson (16-4). In the co-main event, arguably two of the most dynamic bantamweights in the world take center stage when incumbent champion Sergio Pettis (23-5) puts his belt on the line against interim bantamweight champion Patchy Mix (18-1) in a title unification bout.
Reigniting their feud from 2022, former interim bantamweight champion Raufeon Stots (19-2) will meet Danny Sabatello (14-3) in the Italian Gangster’s backyard of Chicago. BELLATOR homegrown superstar and former featherweight champion AJ McKee (20-1) will make his first appearance in 2023 when he takes on top-five ranked lightweight Sidney Outlaw (17-5). Kicking off the action for the main card will be a semifinal matchup in the Lightweight World Grand Prix featuring former lightweight champion and knockout king Patricky Pitbull (25-11) colliding with striking ace Alexander Shabliy (23-3).
BELLATOR 301: Amosov vs. Jackson will air live on SHOWTIME beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Preliminary card action is set to begin at 5 p.m. ET on BELLATOR’s YouTube and Pluto TV channels.
