Bellator 258 airs live on Showtime from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Friday, May 7. MMA event is headlined by the reigning bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta, who makes the first defense of his title against No.1-ranked contender Sergio Pettis.
Juan Archuleta (25-2) earned then vacant bantamweight title by unanimous decision against Patchy Mix in September 2020. Prior to that he defeated Henry Corrales also by UD, and rebounded from the defeat suffered against Patricio Freire in the quarter-final of featherweight WGP a year earlier.
Sergio Pettis (20-5) is riding the three-win streak. In his previous outing last July he scored a unanimous decision against Ricky Bandejas. Before that he submitted Alfred Khashakyan in the first round and took a UD against Tyson Nam.
The Bellator 259 co-main event features Anthony Johnson (22-6) and Jose Augusto (7-2, 1 NC), as the pair squares off in the quarter-final bout of light heavyweight World Grand Prix. Also on the main card Patricky Freire (23-9) goes up against Peter Queally (12-5-1) at lightweight, and Michael “Venom” Page (18-1) meets Derek Anderson (17-3, 1 NC) at 175-pound catchweight.
