Bellator MMA kicked off its 2021 campaign last week with Bellator 255, which saw Patricio Freire submit Emmanuel Sanchez in the first round to advance to the finals of the Featherweight Grand Prix later this year.
The promotion — which recently inked a multi-year to with SHOWTIME — decided to offer the card for free across several streaming services, including YouTube and HULU. That, however, was only a one-time deal.
No fret, while you will have to have a subscription to SHOWTIME to catch Bellator 256 tonight (April 9, 2021) — which features an opening round match up of the Light Heavyweight Grand Prix between Ryan Bader and Lyoto Machida — you can catch all of the undercard action for free.
Just click on the embedded video player above to enjoy all of the action.
