Jeremy Kennedy takes on Adam Borics at Bellator 256
Kennedy (16-2) has fought for a number of major promotions, including UFC, PFL and now Bellator. The 28-year-old parted ways with the UFC after the first blemish on his rap sheet to current featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski. Since that defeat, the Xtreme Couture product has gone 5-1, 1NC. The British Columbia native will look to follow in the footsteps of his Bellator debut, as he defeated Matt Bessette via unanimous decision at Bellator 253.
Borics (16-1) has just one loss on his professional record and is 7-1 under the Bellator banner. He holds notable victories over Aaron Pico, Pat Curran and most recently Erick Sanchez. At Bellator 250 last October, the 27-year-old earned a unanimous decision against Sanchez.
Along with the Jeremy Kennedy vs. Adam Borics match-up, only two other fights have been announced for this fight card, which are quarter-final Light Heavyweight Gand Prix bouts between Ryan Bader and Lyoto Machida, as well as Corey Anderson vs. Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov.
Bellator 256 goes down on April 9 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
