Bellator 261 will air live starting at 5:30 p.m. ET on Bellator’s YouTube page. The main card starts around 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Showtime. MMASucka will bring you Bellator 261 results as the event unfolds.

In the Bellator 261 main event, top-ranked Bellator heavyweight Tim Johnson (15-6) fights third-ranked Valentin Moldavsky (10-1) for the interim heavyweight title. This bout will bring non-stop action as both men always put their all into a fight. 

In the co-main event, Liz Carmouche looks to maintain her undefeated Bellator record (2-0) as she faces Kana Watanabe. Both fighters think this bout will lead to a title fight, something they both say they are ready for.

At lightweight, TUF 15 alum and UFC vet Myles Jury will look to earn his third win in a row against “Da Gun” Sidney Outlaw in a pivotal top-ten matchup. While Outlaw will likely look to take the fight to the ground, Jury is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt that is comfortable wherever the fight goes.
