Following its first Champions Series event in Belfast, Bellator MMA returned for a stacked card that took place at the Accor Arena in Paris, France.

The main event was a rematch between Patchy Mix and Magomed Magomedov with Mix’s bantamweight title on the line. “No Love” submitted the Russian at Bellator 289 to book his spot in the finals of the promotion’s bantamweight Grand Prix, and the 30-year-old narrowly collected his second victory over Magomedov when he won a hard-fought split decision in Paris.

The night’s co-main event saw Cédric Doumbé make his Bellator debut against promotional veteran Jaleel Willis in a 175 lbs. showdown. Doumbé suffered the first loss of his MMA career in controversial fashion in a PFL Europe main event last March, but the former GLORY kickboxing champion rebounded in Paris when he stopped Willis with strikes late in the first round.

Other standout results from the night included Costello van Steenis securing a rarely-seen Von Flue choke to defeat Gregory Babene, as well as Mansour Barnoui's D'Arce choke against Yusuke Yichi and Asael Adjoudj's knockout-win over Bruno Fontes that kicked off the card in tremendous fashion.
