As Bellator 144: "Galvao vs. Dantas 2" on Oct. 23, 2015, draws closer, the mixed martial arts (MMA) outfit continues to add to the card with more "Prelims" undercard matches that fans at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., will see live.

Of course, combat sports fans will still be able to watch these "Prelims" on, too.

Featherweight veterans Isao Kobayashi (18-2-4) and Goiti Yamauchi (18-2) are the biggest bout among the newly announced matches. Yamauchi was originally scheduled to fight Pat Curran at Bellator 139, but had to withdraw because of injury and was replaced by Emmanuel Sanchez.
