Bellator 188 happened on Thursday in Tel Aviv, Israel. In what is entirely Spike/Viacom’s call, these broadcasts are airing on a one-day delay. This is 2017, and Spike is still doing to Bellator MMA exactly what they were doing with the UFC for years until the UFC moved to Fox Sports.
Anyway, the main event was scheduled to be Patricio Freire defending his featherweight title against Daniel Weichel, but Pitbull was pulled due to injury, so the new main event is featherweight Noad Lahat against Jeremiah Labiano.
