The Bellator 291 Results are in for Amosov vs Storley 2. The event went down live from the 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday, February 25, 2023, airing on Showtime.
In the main event, Yaroslav Amosov made his debut, since vacating the title to serve his homeland in Ukraine for the past year. An endearing and difficult background set the stage for the unification of the welterweight world championship. The championship currently being held by the interim champion Logan Storley, when he defeated MVP in May of 2022.
Amosov vs Storley 2 may have gone to a decision, but it was not as competitive as their first fight. The first round resulted in Storley wearing damage with a cut over his right eye. The night didn’t get better for Storley after that.
Some serious Yaroslav Amosov leg kicks got Storley’s attention who then shifted to southpaw. Amosov stuffed shots, secured a couple of takedowns, and continued to batter Storley on the feet.
Nobody was surprised when the winner was announced to be Yaroslav Amosov who seemed to have 10-9 rounds in each round of the fight. In the octagon interview he appeared to be nothing but class, thanking the Ukrainian Army and those who help. Below are the remaining nights results.
