Bellator 301: ‘Amosov vs. Jackson’ Weigh-In Results: 1 fighter misses weight
Bellator 301 takes place Friday night from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Ill., as it is the promotion’s third trip back to “The Windy City” in one year and its second of 2023.
The 16-fight Bellator 301 card features many huge names from top-to-bottom, including two world title fights and a Grand Prix lightweight semifinal bout.
In the Bellator 301 main event, Ukraine’s undefeated Yaroslav Amosov takes on Jason Jackson for the welterweight title as Amosov puts his unbeaten record on the line.
Amosov has been unstoppable since breaking into the Bellator scene in July 2018, which includes wins over Logan Storley (x2), Douglas Lima, Michael Paige, and Ed Ruth.
As for Jackson, he enters Bellator 301 as the division’s top contender, having won six straight. His streak includes many names similar to Amosov’s pedigree, with Jackson’s biggest arguably coming against Benson Henderson, the former UFC lightweight champion.
The Bellator 301 co-main event is a legacy fight between Bellator’s two best bantamweights, as Sergio Pettis and Patchy Mix will lock horns to unify their respective titles.
Pettis beat Patricio Pitbull in June, while Mix won five straight and knocked out Raufeon Stots in his last outing in July.
The Bellator 301 card also features a Grand Prix semifinal bout between Patricky Pitbull and Alexander Shabily. The winner was originally scheduled to face Usman Nurmagomedov in the finals, but after Nurmagomedov failed a drug test, Bellator opted to put Brent Primus back into the tournament.
Whether Primus will face the winner is unknown, as Bellator has yet to announce a decision at press time.
A rematch between former Bellator interim bantamweight champion Stots and Danny Sabatello will ignite the hometown Sabatello crowd. Also, A.J. McKee will take on Sidney Outlaw at lightweight, totaling a five-fight Bellator 301 main card.
