Bellator 263 to hold featherweight grand prix finale at The Forum next month
The Bellator featherweight grand prix finale will take place in the promotion’s return to the West coast.
As MMA Fighting first reported, the 145-pound title fight between Patricio Pitbull and AJ McKee will take place at Bellator 263 on July 31. At Wednesday’s Bellator 263 virtual press conference, the promotion announced that the event will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
In addition, Bellator officially confirmed four other matchups for the card. In a potential title eliminator in the bantamweight division, Raufeon Stots will take on Magomed Magomedov. After the submission loss to Pitbull at Bellator 255 in April, Sanchez is set to return against Mads Burnell during the promotion’s first domestic event outside of Mohegan Sun Arena since the COVID-19 pandemic turned the world upside down. The pair of bouts were first reported by MMA Junkie.
