Bellator 294 Preview:
In the co-feature, former interim heavyweight championship challenger Tim Johnson (15-9 MMA, 3-5 BMMA) teams up with Said Sowma (8-4 MMA, 2-3 BMMA) for a heavyweight banger. Johnson will try to end a three-fight losing streak that began with his interim belt defeat to Valentin Moldavsky. He was then knocked out in the first round by Fedor Emelianenko and potential championship challenger Linton Vassell. Sowma has suffered two straight defeats, both by split decision.
Carmouche is a Bellator women’s flyweight champion and a former UFC women’s bantamweight championship challenger. So is Sara McMann (13-6 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), who came to Bellator as a free agent after years of competing in the UFC. She will, however, step up from 135 pounds to featherweight, where Cris Cyborg currently holds the title. McMann will face Arlene Blencowe (15-9 MMA, 8-5 BMMA), whose most recent bout was a loss to Cyborg in Hawaii a year ago.
On April 21, a three-year-in-the-making rematch will kick off Bellator’s return to Hawaii. DeAnna Bennett will defend her Bellator flyweight belt against Liz Carmouche.
The battle will take place inside Honolulu’s Neal S. Blaisdell Arena, with the event limited to military and first responders. Bellator 294 will air on Showtime in the United States.
Carmouche, a Marine Corps veteran with three tours of duty, became pro in 2010. “Girl-Rilla” competed for Strikeforce and Invicta before joining the UFC in 2013 and losing to Ronda Rousey in a fight for the first UFC bantamweight title. Carmouche went 5-5 in the UFC before being dismissed, despite signing a new contract.
She debuted in Bellator in 2020, defeating Bennett via submission, and is now 5-0 with the organization. Carmouche won the Bellator flyweight title in 2022 by defeating Juliana Velasquez. Her most recent fight came in December when she defeated Velasquez through submission. This is a rematch.
Bennett went professional in 2012 and competed for Invicta from 2014 to 2019. She has a three-fight winning streak after losing to Carmouche at Bellator 246. Her most recent fight, in August, was a rematch victory over Justine Kish, whom she had previously defeated.
Bellator 295 Preview:
Raufeon Stots will defend his Bellator bantamweight title in the Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix finals on April 22 before facing Sergio Pettis to unify the title.
Stots will battle Patchy Mix in the Bellator 295 finals for the belt and $1 million. The bout takes place at Hawaii’s Neal S. Blaisdell Arena and will air on Showtime in the United States.
Stots, a two-time gold medalist at the NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships, turned pro in 2015. He was a VFC bantamweight champion who tried to prove his worth on Dana White’s Lookin’ For a Fight.
Slots debuted in Bellator in 2019 and is 7-0 with the organization. Stots won the interim belt in April 2022 in a Grand Prix quarter-final fight against Juan Archuleta while Pettis was out with an injury. In December, he defeated Danny Sabatello in the semi-finals to maintain his title.
Mix went pro in 2016. He is a former KOTC bantamweight champion who joined Bellator in 2019 and is 7-1 with the organization. Mix, a previous championship candidate, is riding a four-fight winning streak. In December, he defeated Kyoji Horiguchi in the Grand Prix quarter-finals and Magomed Magomedov in the semi-finals.
Former champion and Hawaii native Ilima-Lei Macfarlane is also on the card, as is Aaron Pico, who is making his comeback after a shoulder injury, and former UFC star Ray Borg.
