Bellator 258 predictions | Juan Archuleta vs. Sergio Pettis: Fight card, odds, Prelims, Venue

Bellator MMA is back in action on Friday night. The promotion returns from a two-week hiatus to see a loaded fight card take place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut with Bellator 258. The bantamweight title is on the line in the main event when champion Juan Archuleta puts his title on the line against top contender Sergio Pettis.

Meanwhile, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson is still set to make his promotional debut despite his scheduled opponent, Yoel Romero, falling off the card on a week’s notice after failing a pre-fight medical screening. Now, Johnson will battle Jose Augusto in the co-main event as part of the Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix. The winner will get a shot at the champion, Vadim Nemkov, in the semifinals after Nemkov handled Phil Davis by decision in April.

Plus, this card marks the return of Michael “Venom” Page when he takes on Derek Anderson in a catchweight bout at 175 pounds. Page is hoping to get back into title contention after losing by vicious knockout to current champ Douglas Lima in 2019. “MVP” remains an incredibly dangerous striker with a pension for knockouts, but faces a tough test in the durable Anderson.
