Scott Coker hopes that Amasov returns quickly and so they can guide the rematch between him and Storley. Outdoors of that there are some choices that the brand new interim champion introduced up with Huge John McCarthy.
Douglas Lima; who’s struggling proper now, on a three-fight shedding streak and Jason Jackson have been imagined to struggle on this card as nicely. It was pushed again to July eighth at Bellator 283. So it’s doable with no Amasov and ready for that winner, he’d be parked until the top of the yr.
