Bellator 234 took place in Israel on Thursday, but Bellator rights have it as such that we’re not getting a look at this card until Friday night on Paramount Network and DAZN. So in the interest of playing pretend, please don’t post spoilers in the comments section.

Anyway, the main event is a heavyweight bout between Sergei Kharitonov and Linton Vassell. The Gozali father-son duo of Haim and Aviv fight in separate bouts (obviously), while Roger Huerta battles Sidney Outlaw in the co-main event. Austin Vanderford, better known as Paige VanZant’s fiance, will take on Grachik Bozinyan. I don’t even know why I’m using present tense for fights that already happened... maybe I really am going to play pretend.

Discuss the card starting at 9 PM ET on Paramount Network and DAZN, with preliminary card action (also tape-delayed but broadcast “as-live”) at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT.
