7 Fights Added To Bellator Japan – Fedor VS. Jackson

This morning Bellator announced 7 new fights for their Japanese show, going down on 29th Dec 2019. This will be Bellator’s first-time traveling to Japan and the iconic Saitama Super Arena for an event, The main event will see Fedor Emelianenko (38-6, 1 NC) and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (38-13) square off in a long-awaited heavyweight showdown. The card will air LIVE on Paramount Network.

Unfortunately, one of the fan-favorite fights has been removed from the card due to injury. Bantamweight Double Champion Kyoji Horiguch will not fight in his much-anticapated rematch against Kai Asakura after he suffered an ACL Injury training. We believe that the corrective sugary has already taken place, but will be on sidelines for at least 9 months. 

As the days draw closer to the fight night we can now see some of the matchups and the structure that the night itself will take. Below are the 7 new fights added to the card:
