It’s a big night for Bellator MMA and this card is being highly undersold. The main event features John Salter vs. Costello van Steenis who look to put on a show for the Oklahoma crowd, but it’s what happens beforehand that fans should be paying close attention to.

In the co-main event, we will witness the final fight of an MMA icon in Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal. He’ll be fighting the last bout of his storied career when he takes on Andrew Kapel.

Bellator 233: Tyrell Fortune details near-death weight cut

Also worthy to note is a women’s featherweight fight between Leslie Smith and Arlene Blencowe. It’s thought that perhaps whoever wins this bout will get a crack at the winner of the Julia Budd vs. Cris “Cyborg” Justino in January.

Other fighters to keep your eyes on are undefeated prospect Tyrell Fortune and women’s stand-out Janay Harding.
