Bellator 200 Features 18 Bouts…. And Conor McGregor Is Welcome To Attend Despite His Cage Invasion
Bellator MMA have finalised their fight card for Bellator 200 on May 25 and it’s looking stacked from top to bottom with no fewer than 18 fights.
Bellator officials confirmed to SevereMMA last evening that the mooted bout between SBG Ireland fighter Charlie Ward and Louis King is now official and will appear on the preliminary card.
Last evening, we reached out to Bellator officials to understand whether Ward’s friend and teammate Conor McGregor would be welcome at the event given the incident that occurred last year when he entered the cage and pushed an official following Ward’s win over John Redmond. We were informed that McGregor isn’t banned from Bellator events and thus could attend Bellator 200 on May 25 should he wish.
There is also no word about what will be the main event come fight night. Gegard Mousasi vs Rafael Carvalho battling it out for the Bellator middleweight title and the heavyweight bout between Mirko Cro Cop and Roy Nelson are said to be the two fights battling it out for the honours.
