Bellator will make its second trip to France on Friday with Bellator 280 , which takes place at Accor Arena in Paris with a main card that airs on Showtime following prelims that stream on MMA Junkie. Ryan Bader (29-7 MMA, 7-2 BMMA) will attempt to keep hold of his heavyweight championship in the main event, but he’ll have to win in enemy territory to do it. France’s own Cheick Kongo (31-11-2 MMA, 13-3 BMMA) will look to achieve the crowning moment of his career when he challenges Bader for gold in a rematch of a controversial no contest from Bellator 226 in September 2019. For more on the numbers behind the headliner, as well as the rest of the card, check below for MMA Junkie’s pre-event facts about Bellator 280.
