The 12 fights at Bellator 258 are spread across two cards. The prelims start the action early at 5:30 PM ET (2:30 PM PT), followed by the main event — featuring Juan Archuleta against Sergio Pettis for the bantamweight championship — at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT. Eight bouts are slated for the preliminary card with the main card featuring four fights. If you want to see the complete lineup of combatants doing their ring-walks tonight, you can check out the full schedule below.


Headlining the Bellator 258 fight card is bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta (25-2, 11 KOs), who will be facing title challenger Sergio Pettis (20-5, 3 KOs). Archuleta won the belt at Bellator 246 last fall, where he bested Patrick “Patchy” Mix (who is fighting on the undercard tonight). Pettis is the number one-ranked bantamweight on the Bellator roster, so this should be an exciting fight. UFC veteran Anthony Johnson (22-6, 16 KOs) is making his Bellator debut against Jose Augusto (7-2, 5 KOs) as the co-main event.

The action begins with the prelims at 5:30 PM ET tonight, and you can watch Bellator 258 live stream by signing up for a free month of Showtime.
