Bellator 293 takes place Friday at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif.

Main event

Marcelo Golm def. Davion Franklin at Bellator 283

[autotag]Daniel James[/autotag] (14-6-1 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) made a major statement in Bellator’s heavyweight division this past November when he took out Tyrell Fortune with a second-round knockout in front of his home fans in Chicago. That earned the journeyman a headlining spot against [autotag]Marcelo Golm[/autotag] (10-3 MMA, 2-0 BMMA). James first fought for Bellator in 2014, then bounced around until his home upset of Fortune. Golm has four straight wins since he was bounced from the UFC in 2019 on a three-fight skid.

Co-main event

Leah McCourt

Former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger [autotag]Cat Zingano[/autotag] (13-4 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) will try to stay perfect at featherweight when she takes on Leah McCourt (7-2 MMA, 6-1 BMMA) in the co-feature. It’s a critical fight for the division – particularly if Bellator can reach a contract renewal with women’s 145-pound champion Cris Cyborg. Zingano has been reinvigorated at Bellator with three straight wins. Northern Ireland’s McCourt will be fighting in the U.S. for just the second time in her pro career.
