The Bellator 219 lineup is growing with the addition of new main-card and preliminary-card bouts.
A middleweight fight between former GLORY kickboxing champ Joe Schilling (3-5 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) and veteran Keith Berry (15-14-1 MMA, 2-3-1 BMMA) will be featured on the main card, while Janay Harding (4-4 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) welcomes promotional newcomer Marina Mokhnatkina (4-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in a women’s featherweight contest on the prelims.
Bellator 219 takes place March 29 at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif. The main card airs on Paramount and streams on DAZN following prelims on MMA Junkie.
Schilling was successful in his return to MMA after more than four years away in November when he defeated Will Morris by corner-stoppage TKO at Bellator 210. He will attempt to earn consecutive wins for the first time in the sport against Barry, who is winless in his past six fights dating back to July 2013.
Harding is coming off a big win over Sinead Kavanagh at Bellator 217 in October. She will attempt to spoil the debut of Mokhnatkina, who has fought all her career bouts under the Fight Nights Global banner.
