Bellator is bringing the heat to Ireland and Bellator 291, as Yaroslav Amosov and Logan Storley collide.
Set from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, the unified Bellator welterweight title will be on the line live on Showtime this Saturday.
The 29-year-old Amosov is unbeaten in his career, with the last seven fights coming under the Bellator banner. He won the belt in 2021 with a decision vs. Douglas Lima and will be defending for the first time.
Along with the win over Lima, he also scored a split decision in 2020 vs. Storley. Ed Ruth, David Rickels and Erick Silva are among the list of those who have failed to best him.
Storley follows in the same mold as many of those who have failed to defeat Amosov. He was a four-time placewinner at the NCAA Div. I wrestling level, finishing a high of third his junior season.
Since transitioning over to mixed martial arts, Storley has shined, beating the likes of Michael Page, Neiman Gracie and A.J. Matthews. The lone loss was that split vs. Amosov, which he now has the opportunity to right.
Along with that fight, Pedro Carvalho meets Jeremy Kennedy, Peter Queally battles Bryce Logan and Sinead Kavanagh faces Janay Harding.
