Matt Mitrione will return to the Bellator cage on April 2 at Bellator 255. The former UFC fighter will take on Tyrell Fortune on the main card of the event.
The fight is a big one for Mitrione as he will look to get back into the win column after going 0-3 with one no contest in his last four outings. His last victory came in the quarterfinals of the heavyweight grand prix in 2018 when he picked up a majority decision win over Roy “Big Country” Nelson at Bellator 194.
Mitrione has been preparing for the wrestling heavy Fortune by spending part of his training in south Florida before returning back to his home in Indianapolis to finish up his camp.
