Bellator MMA presents Bellator 153: “Koreshkov vs. Henderson” on April 22, 2016 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., with a main event featuring Benson Henderson’s promotional debut in a welterweight title shot against Andrey Koreshkov.
A new fight with intriguing lightweight potential has just been added to the main card. The undefeated Brent Primus (6-0) returns for his first fight since beating Derek Anderson last August to take on “Toninho Furia” Gleristone Santos (27-5).
Primus spent two-thirds of his pro career in Bellator, and Anderson remains the only opponent to date Primus didn’t finish in the first round. He’ll face an even tougher test in Santos. He went undefeated for four years before dropping a split decision to John Teixeira at Bellator 143.
The updated card for Bellator 153 can be found below.
