Bellatar is going to have a big event for his fans in February. Because Storley (12-1 MMA, 7-1 BMMA) will headline the first five rounds of the non-title fight of the promotion when he meets Neiman Gracie (11-2 MMA, 9-2 BMMA) on February 19 at Baletter 274 ,
Refreshing Mark Lemminger's 87-second disaster, Brazilian Gracie will wear ballet gloves for the 12th time in a row against hard-hitting Storley, who began his professional career with six consecutive KOs. Also, former Baletor welterweight champion Andrei Koreshkov is returning to action against the winner of his last seven bouts, Mohammad Berkhmov.
Gracie (No. 4) and Storley (No. 5) both want to build new winning lines after recent setbacks. Gracie (11-2) has replaced winning and loss since December 2018, with the recent decision to lose to Jason Jackson to stop Mark Lemminger. Storley (12-1) defeated Dante Schiro by a split decision after losing to Yaroslav Amosav by a narrow margin, after which he defeated Douglas Lima for the Belter Welterweight title.
In addition, Andrey Koreshkov (No. 8) is up against powerful Mukhmad Berkamov in Syria's co-host competition. Elsewhere, the sixth-ranked Vita Artiga competes against the unbeaten Keri Taylor Melendez in the women's flyweight fight. Opening the main card, heavyweights Seed Sowma and Devion Franklin, both ranked No. 8 in the official Blatter rankings, collide.
The early card battles are worth watching, including Georgi Karakhanyan vs. Adam Piccolotti and Mandel Nallo vs. Nick Brown.
