Bellator 157: Dynamite 2 will take place on Friday night at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri and will be headlined by a catchweight bout of 215 pounds as Quinton “Rampage” Jackson returns to the promotion to meet Satoshi Ishii.

Along with the Rampage vs. Ishii fight in the main event of the fight card, the main card on Spike will see three other MMA fights and two kickboxing fights. In the co-main event, the vacant lightweight title will be on the line as former Bellator champion Michael Chandler looks to join Eddie Alvarez as the only two-time lightweight champions in Bellator history when he has a rematch with Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.

The other two mixed martial arts fights on the main card will be key bouts in the Bellator heavyweight and women’s flyweight divisions. In the heavyweight bout, Matt Mitrione will make his promotional debut against Carl Seumanutafa and Ilima-Lei Macfarlane will look to remain undefeated when she meets Rebecca Ruth in a flyweight bout.

Check out a breakdown of the MMA fights that will be on the main card broadcast on Spike.
