Ryan Scope via TKO (strikes) – Round 1, 1:46 Mads Burnell def. Darko Banovic via TKO (strikes) – Round 1, 3:13 Note: Bellator officials confirmed the William Gomis vs. Dylan Logan and Ilias Bulaid vs. Ivan Naccari bouts originally scheduled for the Bellator Europe 10 prelims have been removed from the card due to "a fighter from each matchup not being licensed to compete by the overseeing athletic commission." They will be the first major MMA promotion to host an event in France. Arguably the biggest name on the card is one of the most famous MMA fighters to ever come from France in Cheick Kongo (30-10-2, 1 NC).

Kongo will be taking on Tim Johnson (14-6) at Bellator 248 in Paris. That night, Kongo knocked out Johnson in the first round of their heavyweight contest. Kongo is looking to get back on track in this fight. Prior to his title fight against Ryan Bader at Bellator 226, Kongo had won eight consecutive fights inside the Bellator cage. Kongo believed that he deserved an immediate rematch with Ryan Bader given the way the first fight ended.

However, Bellator had other plans and booked Kongo against Johnson. After suffering back to back knockout losses, Johnson has won two consecutive fights by knockout. For Johnson to be successful in the rematch, he's going to have to grapple with Kongo. I expect Johnson to come out aggressive looking to tire Kongo. Despite being 44, Kongo looked sensational leading up to that title match against Ryan Bader.

I'm expecting Kongo to come out looking very good in Bellator's Paris debut. Expect some early grappling, but I think eventually Kongo is going to be able to catch Johnson with something big. Expect him to call out Ryan Bader once the fight is over. Prediction: Cheick Kongo by KO – Round 1 Ross Houston will make his Bellator MMA debut this weekend Ross Houston's sights are firmly set on the Bellator welterweight title. Inverness' Houston will make his long-awaited Bellator debut tonight in the promotion's historic card in Paris, the first major mixed martial arts event to take place in France since the recent legalisation of the sport. The undefeated Houston hasn't been given a gimme fight for his maiden outing in the promotion. That man, of course, is London's Michael 'Venom' Page - whose sole blemish on his record is a second-round TKO defeat to reigning champion Douglas Lima. Upon signing for Bellator, 'The Hitman' immediately made it known that he wanted to dance with Page. Ross Houston will be welcomed to Bellator by Michael 'Venom' Page I asked for this fight because I know once I beat him, it's going to do big things for my career Ross Houston on his Bellator Paris showdown with Michael 'Venom' Page "I asked for this fight because I know once I beat him, it's going to do big things for my career," Houston told Express Sport. "It's literally the platform and the name that he's got and what it'll create for me when I beat him on Saturday night." In order to hand 'MVP' his second professional loss, Houston will have to avoid being lured into the traps Page has become renowned for setting with his feints, movement and gamesmanship. The box of tricks Page has bamboozled all but one of opponents with, however, is nothing new for Houston. I'll get the job done." Houston's eagerly-anticipated clash with Page will be his first outing the since the last defence of his Cage Warriors welterweight title in June 2019. Ross Houston is planning for a short night at the office in his Bellator debut Bellator 248 and Euro Series 10 take place at AccorArena in Paris on October 10.
