A heavyweight bout between Tyrell Fortune and Matt Mitrione is the latest addition to April’s Bellator 255 lineup.
Bellator officials announced the bout between Fortune (9-1 MMA, 9-1 BMMA) and Mitrione (13-8 MMA, 4-3 BMMA) on Friday.
Bellator 255 takes place April 2 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The card airs on Showtime.
After opening his career with eight consecutive wins, Fortune, 30, successfully rebounded from a two-fight winless skid in November when he beat Said Sowma at Bellator 251.
Mitrione, 42, meanwhile, sees himself in a career-worst drought. He’s winless over his past four Bellator fights, and will attempt to get his hand raised for the first time since February 2018.
The latest Bellator 255 card now includes:
- Patricio Freire vs. Emmanuel Sanchez – for featherweight title
- Neiman Gracie vs. Jason Jackson
- Mike Hamel vs. Usman Nurmagomedov
- Magomed Magomedov vs. Jared Scoggins
- Tyrell Fortune vs. Matt Mitrione
