Benson Henderson vs. Islam Mamedov added to Bellator 273

It’ll be another home fight for Benson Henderson for his next Bellator outing.

The former WEC and UFC lightweight champion is set to face Islam Mamedov in the co-main event of Bellator 273 on January 29th in Phoenix, Arizona. Showtime will broadcast the main card, with prelims available for live stream on YouTube and on PlutoTV.

Henderson (28-11) is on the longest losing streak of his career, having dropped three straight. In August of last year he was knocked out by Michael Chandler, then dropped a decision to Jason Jackson at welterweight later that November, and in his lone appearance of 2021 he came up short against Brent Primus at Bellator 268 in Arizona.
