Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson tries to make history by capturing the welterweight title at Bellator 153 this Friday night.
Henderson makes his promotional debut vs. champion Andrey Koreshkov in the main event on Spike TV from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Following his UFC contract expiring, Henderson opted to sign with Bellator instead of remaining a contender inside the Octagon.
Along with Koreshkov-Henderson, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire tries to remain on a path back to the featherweight title when he meets Henry Corrales, who replaced John Teixeira in the co-main event.
Brennan Ward battles Evangelista Santos, Michael Page meets Jeremie Holloway and Brent Primus takes on Glierstone Santos to round out the main card.
Below is the current card:
