Bellator will once again open its doors for fans in June, the company announced Wednesday.
It took months for the promotion to start putting on events since the COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and fans weren’t allowed inside the Mohegan Sun Arena bubble nor in three Europe shows. That changes on June 11, when Bellator 260 goes down in Uncasville, Conn.
Tickets for the event, which features Douglas Lima vs. Yaroslav Amosov for the welterweight championship as the headlining attraction, start at $60 and go on sale Friday. A limited number of fans will also be allowed for Bellator 261 on June 25, when Tim Johnson and Valentin Moldavsky battle for the interim heavyweight gold. Bellator has not announced the exact number of fans allowed inside the arena.
Bellator 260, which takes place Friday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena, will be the 19th and final event without fans in attendance. The event, that airs live on Showtime, will feature a rematch between Bellator featherweight queen Cris Cyborg and Leslie Smith.
