Bellator 279 Latest News & Stories – How to watch UFC live, betting trends and best bets
In addition to the UFC and the boxing fight for the WBC heavyweight championship belt, this fighting weekend was completed by Bellator and KSW events. Bellator organized a double program on Friday and Saturday, where we will get new champions in the flyweight category, as well as in the featherweight category. Both events are held in Hawaii. As for KSW, the event is being held in Warsaw, and the event is led by a fight for the champion in the bantamweight category. Let’s start with Bellator 279!
Bellator 279 – Cris Cyborg vs. Arlene Blencowe
The fight leading this event is a title fight and it is a rematch between the undisputed champion Cris Cyborg and the Australian Arlene Blenocowe. The two girls competed two years ago, at Bellator 249, when Cyborg won by drowning in the second round. Cyborg is one of the best fighters of all time. She has only two defeats in her career, the first she had at the beginning of her career against the unknown Erice Paes, and the second against Amanda Nunes when she lost the UFC title. She is very dominant in Bellator, she ended all four fights with a break.
In addition to Blenocowa, she also defeated Julia Budd and Leslie Smith, and in the last match Sinead Kavanagh. Blencowe is great at stand-up, doing equally well in kickboxing and boxing. But her ground floor is not at a high level. Blencowe works from the counter guard, which makes her even more dangerous. He holds a couple of records in Bellator, the most fights in the lightweight category, the most knockouts, and wins in the same category. After the defeat by Cyborg, she scored two victories and got the opportunity to attack the belt for the third time.
Bellator’s double program, in addition to the championship fights, brings the first round of Bellator’s GP in the Bantam Division, and a fight for a million dollars and a belt. The first pairs of this tournament, Barzola vs Mikhailov and Lugo vs Sabetello, are fighting in the event on Friday, while the other two pairs, Archuleta vs Stots and former champion Horiguchi vs Mix, are fighting on Saturday.
The 👏 Champs 👏 Are 👏 Here👏

KSW 69 – Sebastian Przybysz vs Werlleson Martins
The event in Warsaw is led by one of the most popular Polish fighters, Sebic, who has Brazilian Werllrsson Martins as his opponent for the KSW bantamweight title. Przybysz, after defending his first title against Bruno Silva, won the title against Georgian Zurik Joju. But just a few days before the event itself, Jojua gave up due to a rib fracture. Brazilian Martins came in as a replacement for the short notice. He is facing a very difficult task. Przybysz is a very difficult and quality opponent. We had the best opportunity to see that when he played a perfect match in the return match against Antun Račić, controlled the distance and unanimously defeated Račić and took the belt. He is excellent in all segments of the fight from wrestling and ground, which is perhaps his basic background to standup, which controls the distance and puts pressure on opponents.
The popular Galinho is known to all fans of wrestling from the region because he has been fighting in the SBC organization for a couple of years now, where there is no defeat. In the last two matches at the SBC, he defeated two Dagestani fighters, Imanov and Gasanov. Martins is also a great wrestler, and one should pay attention to his leg kicks. Great opportunity for him, but when you accept the match a few days before, the odds are not on your side.
