Bellator MMA comes to Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kan., this Friday night (Feb. 26, 2016) with Bellator 150: “Kongo vs. Quieroz,” which will air live on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET.

As I said, there are more questions than answer in this weight class, but a third straight win for “Spartan” Queiroz might sort out a few things. Since leaving UFC he has won ….View full article
