On Friday night, Bellator MMA returns to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, with a stacked Bellator 260 card. In the main event, Douglas Lima will defend the Bellator welterweight championship against Yaroslav Amosov. Lima is on his third stint as champion at 170 pounds, making him one of the most successful fighters in the promotion's history.

A host of other interesting fights litter the card, including the catchweight co-main event between Paul Daley and the streaking Jason Jackson and Aaron Pico attempting to continue to battle back from early career setbacks.

Let's take a look at those fights and the biggest storylines on the very compelling Bellator 260 card.

Lima finally defends his title
When Lima won the Bellator welterweight championship for a third time in October 2019, the idea that he wouldn't make his first title defense until June 2021 would have seemed ridiculous. A pandemic and a trip to middleweight tied Lima up and stalled the momentum he built in winning the title and the Welterweight World Grand Prix. Losing in his bid for the then-vacant middleweight title against Gegard Mousasi was a minor setback, but Lima now has the chance to start the ball rolling again in the welterweight division where he's long been a force.
