Legends collide when Yoel Romero battles Melvin Manhoef at Bellator Dublin | Video

Bellator Dublin goes down next Friday (September 23, 2022) at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, where a main fight takes place between Benson Henderson and Peter Queally. But the co-main event is just as exciting as Yoel Romero takes on Melvin Manhoef in what will be a rock-solid affair.

The two were initially tied to throw 280 against Bellator before an injury forced Manhoef out of the event. Romero took on Alex Polizzi and knocked him out with one second left in the fight (see it again here).

Now two of the oldest active fighters in all mixed martial arts (MMA) will finally get the chance to throw in the cage. Manhoef (46) has not competed in nearly two years and last lost to Corey Anderson at Bellator 251 on November 2020. Manhoef is only 2-3 over his last five fights.

As for Romero (45), he will try to build on his win over Polizzi to go to 2-1 inside the Bellator cage. With both men’s preference for stand-and-bang, fight fans are in for a treat if the fight stays on their feet… and however long it lasts.
