Bellator returns with a thirteen-fight event that is STACKED with talent. Bellator 259 will feature the rematch between Cris Cyborg and Leslie Smith, several undefeated prospects, the debut of Brett Johns, Valerie Loureda, and more! This is an event you do not want to miss, but make sure you are well-rested because the party starts at midnight.
