MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with the event’s results.
In the main event for Bellator 272, bantamweight champion Sergio Pettis (21-5) will take on Rizin bantamweight champion Kyoji Horiguchi (29-3). Horiguchi vacated the Bellator title in November 2019 due to an injury. Pettis won the title from Juan Archuleta, who beat Patchy Mix fox the vacant title. Horiguchi sees himself as still the champion as he was not beaten for the title, while Pettis wants to cement his legacy as not just a transitional champion. We talked to both fighters during the Bellator 272 media scrums:
The co-main event will feature two featherweights looking to get back on the winning column. The #4 ranked Bellator featherweight Emmanuel Sanchez (20-6) will be taking on #9 ranked Jeremy Kennedy (16-3). Both fighters are coming off tough losses, as Sanchez has lost to Patricio Pitbull and Mads Burnell, while Kennedy lost to Adam Borics in his last fight. Expect these two to put on a great fight.
Other notable fights include Josh Hill (20-4) taking on Jared Scoggins (10-1) in his Bellator debut. Scoggins had his three previous attempts at a Bellator debut fall through. Opening the prelims will be a clash at 170 with Oklahoma State University wrestler Kyle Crutchmer (7-1) taking on Karate-based fighter Oliver Enkamp (10-2).
