As one of the leading competitions for mixed martial arts, Bellator brings together fighting professionals worldwide as they go head-to-head in the cage.
Originally founded in 2008, it is a relatively modern competition for fighters to enrol in, and its name has taken inspiration from the Latin word for warrior. Taking up a tournament-style format, fighters will compete in knockout matches that they must overcome to reach the final and achieve the title.
With these competitions varying in approach, so can the rules. It is important to be aware of the rules adopted by Bellator before considering any betting markets. This will improve the experience by understanding what each bet type means and how wins are achieved.
Now, with this being designed as a tournament, you might be wondering about the duration and how often fighters are expected to enter the cage, as recovery can take time. Typically, fights can be expected once per month as individuals make their way to the final. To allow for improved recovery or reduce the risk of injury, certain moves are made illegal in Bellator.
