Bellator 153 isn’t just any old Bellator event. The April 22 event is Benson Henderson’s Bellator debut. The former UFC fighter will be going up against Andrey Koreshkov for the welterweight title.
Koreshkov is 18-1, with his only loss at the hands of Ben Askren in 2013. He’s finished opponents in 13 of his 18 victories. Henderson is 23-5 and has gone head to head against some of the toughest opponents the UFC has to offer.
Another exciting fight on the schedule is Brent Primus vs Gleristone Santos. Primus is a name worth knowing in the lightweight division. He’s 6-0 and has finished all but one of his opponents in the first round. But Santos is an experience veteran. With 32 fights under his belt, Santos makes for a tough opponent. He won nine of his last ten fights.
Also on the card is John Teiseira vs. Patricio Freire. Teixera is the fighter who put a stop to Santos’ impressive winning streak. Coming off of a loss after a seven-fight win streak, Freire is also a fighter to be reckoned with.
Bellator 153 is shaping up to be one incredible event. More on the fight card to come soon.
