Bellator has added four new fights to its final event of 2022.
Scheduled for Dec. 9 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., Bellator 289 already featured two bantamweight grand prix fights and a women’s flyweight title fight. Now, its undercard is filling up, too.
Rosta, 26, is undefeated as a professional. In his most recent outing, Rosta dominated blue-chip wrestling prospect Romero Cotton en route to a third-round knockout. Meanwhile, Adams upset former UFC fighter Khalid Murtazaliev via unanimous decision in his Bellator debut in September 2021 and has not competed since.
A promotion official recently notified MMA Junkie of the addition, as well as Chris Gonzalez (7-2 MMA, 6-2 BMMA) vs. Shamil Nikaev (10-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) at lightweight, Cass Bell (5-2 MMA, 5-2 BMMA) vs. Jared Scoggins (10-2 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) at bantamweight, and Kevin Boehm (9-5 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) vs. Kai Kamaka (9-5-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA).
