Watch Bellator 251 prelims: Fight card, start time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

Before Corey Anderson makes his Bellator debut in a showdown with big-time striker Melvin Manhoef, some rising prospects and established veterans will throw down on the prelims. Those prelims, anchored by a lightweight bout between Georgi Karakhanyan and Bryce Logan, will be available to stream right here at

Former WSOF champion Karakhanyan has been a longtime staple of Bellator, fighting 16 times for the promotion. Logan is making his first trip to the Bellator cage since dropping a split decision in his promotion debut in August 2018. He has gone 3-1 since, including a current three-fight winning streak, earning his way back for an opportunity against established lightweight veteran Karakhanyan.

That's not all there is to look forward to under these prelims. Alex Polizzi and Julius Anglickas are set to scrap at light heavyweight. The two fighters have combined to reach the judges' scorecards just two times over 16 fights. Anglickas has three knockouts and four submissions to his name while Polizzi has four TKOs and two submissions.

Bellator 251: Melvin Manhoef vs. Corey Anderson fight date, time, TV channel, live stream

Bellator returns with its latest offering on Thursday night when Melvin Manhoef takes on Corey Anderson in the main event of Bellator 251 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Manhoef, one of the most decorated strikers in combat history, returns for the first time in over one year. After losing back-to-back contests, Manhoef has reeled off wins over Kent Kauppinen and Yannick Bahati, whom he defeated via second-round TKO at Bellator 230 in October 2019. Out of his 32 career victories, 29 of them have come inside the distance.

Anderson makes his Bellator debut after winning four of his last five fights in the UFC. In his last time out, he lost to Jan Blachowicz by second-round knockout in February. During the summer, Anderson requested and ended up being granted his release from the organization. Bellator immediately reached out to Anderson and they agreed to a deal in August. 

A win for Anderson puts him right in the thick of things in what is starting to become a competitive light heavyweight division. If Manhoef pulls off the victory, he gets himself into the conversation as well.

Melvin Manhoef vs. Corey Anderson

“Overtime” Corey Anderson has the blue gloves and dark trunks for his Bellator debut, bringing a record of 13-5 with him. “No Mercy” Melvin Manhoef has the red gloves and kickboxing trunks on, a storied record of 32-14-1, 2 NC coming into tonight’s fight. Anderson fights out Brocton, Illinois. Manhoef fights out of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The referee for our main event is Todd Anderson. They touch gloves during the final instructions.

Round 1: Both men are immediately stepping back and forth in the center feeling out the distance and range. Anderson pumps the left jab as Manhoef starts to backpedal. He teases a single leg to keep Manhoef off balance. The second time he really does shoot at 55 seconds, and he’s got it at 1:08. Right hands on top from half guard. So far all Manhoef is doing is trying to get his hands up to block SOME of the shots landing. Manhoef gets back to his feet at 3:00 and resets to center 10 seconds later. Anderson goes for the takedown again and has it at 3:25. He has Manhoef pinned up against the cage and he’s throwing some heavy right hands. Manhoef is again just trying to block the right hands with his own hands. That’s not helping you dude. Manhoef gets to his knees but also eats a big one. He stands for the final few seconds. 10-9 Anderson.

Round 2: “If you’re in Corey Anderson’s corner, you couldn’t have asked for a better first round.” The words of “Big” John McCarthy ring true. Anderson is making Manhoef flinch with every move he makes. He drops levels and takes Manhoef down at 58 seconds, once again unloading with the rights. Anderson is dropping some big right elbows on top and Todd Anderson just warned Manhoef he’s got to move. He did not and the fight is OVER.

Final result: Corey Anderson wins via technical knockout at 2:34 of round two.

Tyrell Fortune vs. Said Sowma

Blue gloves and black trunks for the 6-1 Sowma (six straight wins) in his Bellator debut. Red gloves and green trunks for the 8-1 Fortune. Fortune is 30, Sowma 28. 77” reach to 76” reach.

Fortune gets a short takedown at 4:54. 10-9 Fortune.

Round 2: Fortune wastes no time putting Sowma on his back foot again, chasing a big right hand in the process. Sowma tries to juke and jive but Fortune stays patient and answers with leg kicks and the right hook. Josh Thomson on Sowma: “A lot of feinting and not a lot of throwing.” Two minutes gone. Fortune shoots at 2:20. He has double underhooks but he also has a knee hitting him in the groin. Beltran calls time to let him walk it off and then puts them right back where they were. Sowma escapes a single leg attempt. Fortune pushes Sowma away at 3:52. Fortune goes for an overhand right and trips. Sowma tries to take Fortune’s back as he gets back up, then he tries to trip him to the ground, neither works. Sowma lands a body kick and some good shots upstairs. They trade and Fortune covers up. It feels like Sowma might have eked out a 10-9 late.

Round 3: Fortune is chasing his overhand right now, and Sowma is being elusive and looking for his opening. Leg kick for Sowma. Left jab for Fortune. Sowma comes forward with a combo. Leg kick for Sowma. Jab for Sowma. Body kick for Sowma. Sowma leans all the way back to avoid Fortune’s power shot. Jabs both ways. Two minutes left. Fortune gets knocked down and Sowma grabs a front headlock as he gets up to throw a couple of knees. Sowma puts him on the fence looking for a takedown. They spin around looking to dominate. Fortune with an inside knee until Sowma spins him around again and drops levels. Foot stomps by Sowma. He goes hard for a single and Fortune almost gives him a piledriver.

Vanderford spots the black trunks and red gloves tonight. de Jesus is 9-3 and Vanderford is a perfect 9-0. de Jesus fights out of Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Round 1: A tap of gloves gets us underway. de Jesus lands the kick on Vanderford’s lead left leg. Vanderford shoots and de Jesus sprawls to stuff it, landing some good counter strikes. Vanderford goes for another takedown but de Jesus immediately counters and goes for his foot. Vanderford scrambles free at 1:02 but being so close to the fence when de Jesus went for the knee bar saved him. They size each other up in the center of the cage. Overhand right lands for Vanderford. Straight left for de Jesus. Right from de Jesus and a leg kick. de Jesus lands the leg kick again. Straight shots from Vanderford pop de Jesus’ head back.

He’s in half guard throwing left hands at de Jesus. de Jesus gets him back into full guard at 48 seconds. He’s trying to throw elbows from the bottom. More nasty left hands and right hammerfists from Vanderford. Meanwhile on commentary Mike Goldberg is giving us the hearsay, telling us secondhand how much Chael Sonnen raves about Vanderford’s strength. John McCarthy backs him up by talking about “the squeeze” some guys have. There’s time to tell you all of this because nothing has changed in the last two minutes other than Vanderford getting half guard back. Both men are breathing hard but de Jesus is the one sucking the most air due to the impact of the body and head shots. I might be mistaken but it even looks like Vanderford threw a head butt. If he did nobody on commentary saw it, nor did the ref. Vanderford gets full mount and jumps for an arm triangle but de Jesus survives. 10-9 Vanderford.

Round 3: Vanderford jabs his way into another takedown in the first 15 seconds, which has to frustrate the HELL out of de Jesus’ corner. Left elbows to the head, right hands to the body, slashing left elbow, shoulder strikes, Vanderford is putting on a clinic in top control right now. Three unopposed left hands to the face. Vanderford has excellent balance, staying on top when de Jesus tried to scramble, briefly looking for the arm triangle choke again. de Jesus is now a bloody mess and he’s painting the canvas with his head. He tries to sit up and Vanderford swings him away from the fence and slams him back down. More slicing elbows. There’s so much blood it’s all over their feet and backs. Vanderford stands up to drop one more giant hammer fist. 10-8 Vanderford.

Final result: Austin Vanderford wins by unanimous decision of 30-26, 30-27 X2.

Anderson gets to his feet with 50 seconds left but they’re still grappling. Mota gets kicked in the chin while he’s in the act of getting up and Beltran immediately calls time.
