Yaroslav Amosov vs. Logan Storley Bellator 291 Preview

On Friday, 25th February 2023, Bellator MMA presents a highly anticipated welterweight matchup between undefeated Yaroslav Amosov and the hard-hitting Logan Storley for the title unification at Bellator 291 in Dublin, Ireland.

In November 2020, the reigning champion defeated Storley by a split decision in a tough back-and-forth grappling fight. This was Storley's lone loss in his professional career. The two will now run the event back, and they have 10 additional minutes to determine the undisputed champion.

Yaroslav Amosov, a Ukrainian mixed martial artist, holds a perfect record of 26-0. Known for his grappling skills, Amosov has quickly climbed the ranks in the Bellator welterweight division. He won the title in June 2021 by defeating Douglas Lima. When Russia annexed Ukraine, he was scheduled to face Michael Page in his first championship defense, but he decided to against it and withdrew from the fight. Amosov went to protect and serve his nation under fire.

Meanwhile, Storley (14-1) has experienced a stellar renaissance. Three years after succumbing to Amosov during their very first meeting, the American has won three straight fights, including a decision victory versus Michael "Venom" Page for the interim welterweight title. Logan was awarded a shot for the gold strap following the Ukrainian decision to withdraw.

This bout between Amosov and Storley promises to be an exciting matchup for fans of mixed martial arts. Both fighters are known for their grappling abilities, so it will be interesting to see if they decide to keep the fight standing or try to take each other down to the mat. Amosov has shown that he has good striking, so he may try to keep the fight on the feet and use his superior technique to out-strike Storley. However, Storley's wrestling could be a significant factor in the fight, and he may look to take Amosov down and ground-and-pound his way to victory.

One thing is for sure; this fight is not to be missed. Both fighters are highly skilled and have the potential to become champions in the Bellator welterweight division. It will be interesting to see how they match up against each other and who comes out on top.
