Bellator 134 is one of their quarterly tent pole shows, and it isn’t to be missed. Labeled as the “British Invasion”, Bellator will be putting their top domestic (U.S.) talent up against the best fighters on their roster from the United Kingdom.

Bellator 134 is a themed event, which is always fun, and the nationalism will certain heighten the experience. That’s not the only thing that the card has to offer though. The event has plenty of quality match ups and narratives that will keep your eyes glued to the screen come fight night.

Here’s a focus on why you can’t miss Bellator 134.

Championship Fight

Emanuel Newton has more than proven himself in recent years. With three successful defenses since he defeated King Mo Lawal for the light heavyweight championship his stock has improved dramatically. His fourth defense will be against United Kingdom native, Liam McGeary. McGeary is undefeated in nine fights and has finished almost all of his bouts in the first round. Newton on the other hand has thirteen finishes and twelve decision victories. This match up has fight of the night written all over it.

Paul Daley Returns 

Daley returns to fight in the U.S. after being stuck in his home country for the past two years. Legal troubles have restricted his ability to travel into the U.S. but with those troubles behind him he is scheduled to fight at Bellator 134. Well known for his skills inside the cage, but also his antics he is a fighter fans either love or hate. Regardless of the category you fall into, it’s still a fight you can not miss.

Show Case Event

Scott Coker is well known for his entertainment friendly match making style. Leaning more towards fights that fans will enjoy and away from the sporting aspect of MMA isn’t always the best thing, but one such fight on the Bellator 134 card is fun and kind of makes sense. King Mo’ is in limbo at light heavyweight having lost to the current champion, but beat almost everyone else he has faced. The only fight he lost was a controversial decision to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson who isn’t active on their roster at the moment. So, what to do? Well moving up to heavy weight and fighting Cheick Kongo is what they decided to do, and you can’t really hate it. It’s definitely an entertainment based fight, but it will provide plenty of it come Friday night.
