The date was Oct. 12, 2019. The venue was Ex Palalido in Milan, Italy. The card was either Bellator Milan: “Sakara vs. Grigsby” or Bellator 230: “Nemkov vs. Carvalho,” depending on where you lived and what time of day you were watching.
Whether you were watching the European Series on Channel 5 in the United Kingdom or Bellator MMA’s tape-delayed broadcast on Paramount Network in the United States, the show was a mix of explosive finishes and plodding affairs, see-sawing wildly back and forth between extremes. Alessio Sakara finished Canaan Grigsby in 23 seconds capped on the Milan portion, while Vadim Nemkov headlined Bellator 230 by submitting former champion Rafael Carvalho with a rear-naked choke in round two.
For your viewing pleasure, the entire card will be streamed live from start to finish tonight at 6 p.m. ET in the video player above. If you said “meh” to the line up the first time around, consider the conveniences of watching it all at once instead of the way it originally aired.
