There’s a big Bellator MMA card on July 31st and it comes to you from The Forum in Inglewood, California. In the main event, Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire and AJ McKee not only fight for Pitbull’s featherweight title, there’s also $1 million at stake for the tournament winner in the final I imagine just about every fan wanted to see the most. Pitbull is the most decorated fighter in Bellator MMA history and McKee is the up-and-coming star looking to knock him off his perch.

The co-main event pits former featherweight title challenger Emmanuel Sanchez against Mads Burnell in what should be a very exciting fight. Usman Nurmagomedov, the cousin of retired UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov, also appears on this card versus Manny Muro. You even get Brent Primus and Goiti Yamauchi in separate bouts, plus a compelling featured prelim between women’s flyweights Vanessa Parto and Ilara Joanne.
