The Bellator 134 "British Invasion" card has had its ups and downs, with multiple fights being scrapped or changed, but it looks as though the Feb. 27, 2015, card planned for Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., is finally complete.

Five bouts are set for the Spike TV-televised main card that evening, including "The Hardcore Kid" Emanuel Newton (25-7-1) making his third light heavyweight title defense against undefeated phenom Liam McGeary, who boasts an undefeated (9-0) professional record with only two matches making it out of the first round.

Joining him for televised fights that night will be hard-hitting Paul "Semtex" Daley (35-13-2) vs. Andre Santos (37-9), the "African Magic" fighter Sokoudjou (16-12) taking on Newton's last opponent Linton Vassell (14-4, 1 NC), "King Mo" Lawal (14-4, 1 NC) moving up to heavyweight to face Cheick Kongo (22-9-2) and the undefeated Michael "Venom" Page  (7-0) facing fellow undefeated fighter Curtis Millender (7-0).

The line up has been filled out with seven "Prelims" bouts on the under card that were announced today by Bellator MMA. Heavyweight pro boxer Raphael Butler gets his third chance in MMA after going 0-1-1 in his last two fights, facing the 15-5 Josh "The Freight Train" Diekmann. Jesse Juarez (22-9) goes against fellow welterweight Brennan "The Irish Bad Boy" Ward (9-3). Veteran Bellator middleweight Jason Butcher (8-1) takes on former UFC fighter Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory (12-3).
