Bellator MMA heads to Milan, Italy, on Saturday, where it will split the night's fights into two events. Bellator 230 will air on tape delay on Paramount Network, while Bellator Milan airs live on the Bellator app at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT.
In the main event of Bellator 230, former middleweight king Rafael Carvalho (205) is moving up to light heavyweight to take on Vadim Nemkov (205.6). Carvalho won his last fight back at Bellator 224 to snap his two-fight skid that included losing his middleweight crown to Gegard Mousasi. Nemkov is on a five-fight winning streak, last competing in November where he beat former champ Phil Davis by split verdict.
Bellator Milan's headliner features Melvin Manhoef (205.2) against Yannick Bahati (205.6). The 43-year-old Manhoef returned to the win column last time out, while Bahati made his successful promotional debut by submitting Amir Dadovic.
