The Bellator 284 fight card is announced and all set to go down Friday, August 12, 2022 from the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The event kicks off at 6:00 PM PT.
The main card for this one are welterweights Goiti Yamauchi and the #5 ranked Neiman Gracie. Gracie is coming off of a decision loss to Logan Storley in February so he’ll likely be looking to make a statement. Yamauchi however, is looking to get into a winning streak as he has won his last two most recently a round 1 submission win over Levan Chokheli in April of this year.
The co-main event features a couple of the big boys, when Valentin Moldavsky faces off against Steve Mowry in the heavyweight division. Moldavsky recently suffered a decision loss to Ryan Bader and Mowry has yet to taste defeat in the octagon.
