Bellator’s second show of 2022, Bellator 274, is going to be capped off with an important welterweight main event, a long-awaited return by a fan favorite, and a heavyweight clash. This event will be broadcast from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. It will be happening on Saturday, February 19 with preliminary fights starting at 6 pm EST/3 pm PST on Bellator’s Youtube channel and the main card on Showtime at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST. MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with the event’s results.
Bellator 274 will see #4 ranked Neiman Gracie (11-2) take on #5 Logan Storley (12-1) with the winner likely to face off against the winner of the welterweight championship being champion Yaroslav Amosav vs MVP. Gracie is a jiujitsu black belt and is a part of the storied Gracie family. Even though a submission specialist, he got his first TKO win at Bellator 266 over Mark Lemminger. Storley is an accomplished wrestler whose only loss comes from the welterweight champion by split decision.
The co-main event will see #9 welterweight Andrey Koreshkov (24-4) take on last-minute replacement Chance Rencounre (16-4). Koreshkov was initially supposed to take on Mukhamed Berkhamov, but Berkhamov pulled out. Rencountre has previously fought in UFC and was in Bellator many years ago.
Other notable fights on the card include a returning Brennan Ward (14-6) taking on Brandon Bell (10-10). A heavyweight clash will open the main card with #8 Davion Franklin (4-0) taking on #9 Said Sowma (8-2).
On the prelims, one of the noteworthy fights will be the undefeated submission wizard Aviv Gozali (6-0) taking on Bobby King (10-4). Gozali has finished all of his fights in the first round by submission and has the fastest submission on record in Bellator at 11 seconds. King is also an accomplished grappler who looks to rebound after losing to Alexander Shabily.
