Bellator MMA returns to the United Kingdom on Friday, May 13 with the fight card taking place at OVO Arena Wembley in London. Undefeated welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov, who is actively defending his home country of Ukraine, has withdrawn from his scheduled title defense against Michael “Venom” Page.
In a new Bellator 281 main event “MVP” (20-1) now faces No. 4-ranked welterweight contender Logan Storley (13-1), who is fresh off of a career-defining victory over Neiman Gracie. The pair meets in a five-round bout with the interim 170-pound title on the line.
“Like the rest of the world, we’ve been shocked by the tragic events in Ukraine and the thoughts of everyone at Bellator MMA are with Yaroslav and all the Ukrainian people during this time,” said Bellator MMA President Scott Coker. “We wish he and his family the best and look forward to seeing him return safely to happier times, both inside and out of the Bellator cage.”
