Bellator returns to one of its favorite international spots today as Bellator 291 goes down live from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
The main event features a welterweight title unification bout between undefeated champion Yaroslav Amosov faces interim champion Logan Storley. Ukraine’s Amosov returns to the Bellator cage after spending time defending his country against the Russian invasion, during which time the American wrestling standout Storley captured the interim title in enemy territory against Michael “Venom” Page at Bellator 281. The fight will be Amosov’s first title defense after defeating Douglas Lima at Bellator 260. These two met before at Bellator 252, where Amosov defeated Storley via split decision to earn a title shot and give Storley his first career loss.
A pivotal featherweight fight takes place in the co-main event as Pedro Carvalho battles Jeremy Kennedy. Canada’s “JBC” Kennedy has won two in a row, defeating Emmanuel Sanchez and Aaron Pico at Bellator 272 and Bellator 286 respectively, and is looking to build momentum towards a title shot.
Also on the main card, former title challengers Peter Queally and Sinead Kavanagh perform in front of their hometown crowd against former LFA lightweight champion Bryce Logan and a familiar foe in Janay Harding respectively. Another hometown favorite in Ciaran Clarke will kick off the main card, facing Greece’s “Pitbull” Leonardos Sinis in a catchweight bout.
