Bellator 275 Fight Card Preview
Vanderford made his pro debut in 2017, and first appeared in a Bellator fight in 2019. A former Dana White's Contender Series alum, the husband of Paige VanZant is 5-0 with Bellator. Vanderford's last win was in May, beating Fabian Edwards.
The triumph denoted his fifth in succession with Bellator since making his introduction in February 2019. Vanderford has three successes by consistent choice, one by specialist stoppage TKO and one by accommodation among his Bellator appearances. Mousasi, 36, who's in his second rule as 185-pound champ, is falling off his first title safeguard against John Salter last August at Bellator 264.
Mousasi was predominant prior to scoring a third-round TKO with punches. Mousasi, a previous Strikeforce champion who burned through four years in the UFC, is on a three-battle series of wins and has won 11 of 12 tracing all the way back to February 2016.
A middleweight session between Fabian Edwards and Marian Dimitrov was planned for this occasion, but the session was rejected seven days before for obscure explanation. Fabian Edwards was rebooked against Lyoto Machida at Bellator London.
A lightweight session between Peter Queally versus Kane Mousah and welterweight one between Stefano Paternò versus Luca Poclit were relied upon to happen at the occasion, but Qually and Paternò both pulled out off their sessions because of injury.
At the weigh-ins, Jamie Hay missed load for his session, tipping the scales at 146.8 pounds, .8 pounds over the featherweight non-title battle limit. The session continued at catchweight and Hay was fined a level of his tote, which went to his adversary Lee Hammond.
