Bellator 265: Kongo vs. Kharitonov Finalized Fight Card

MMA news

Bellator MMA goes to the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for Bellator 265. The heavyweight main event will feature the #3-ranked Cheick Kongo against Sergei Kharitonov who is looking to jump into the rankings. 

The co-main event has two ranked featherweights that are looking to make their case for A.J. McKee’s title. Adam Borics and Jay-Jay Wilson both sit in Bellator MMA’s featherweight rankings. Borics is currently ranked at #3 and Wilson ranked at #5 and also carries an undefeated record like the current champion. A win from either fighter could certainly make a case for a match with McKee, that is if he still stays at 145 pounds with Bellator.

This is the final event for Bellator in August, so it should make for a good way to close out the summer! See the full fight card, start time, and viewing information below:
