Bellator is back this week with one of their deeper cards in recent memory. Bellator 225 in Bridgeport, Connecticut may not have one really big ‘feature’ fight on it, but all the way down through the prelims it’s spotted with notable prospects and veterans. Hopefully, that should mean a solid night of action from beginning to end.
