When is Bellator 258: Archuleta vs. Pettis? Full Schedule, Revealed

Image used with permission by copyright holder

This Friday at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, Bellator 258 is bringing a full night of MMA action to your screen as reigning bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta will be defending his title for the first time with Sergio Pettis as his challenger. If you’re looking to watch Bellator 258: Archuleta vs. Pettis live, here’s when and where to tune in, along with some details about the main event.

The Bellator 258 preliminary card features eight bouts to kick off the show early at 5:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. PT). The prelims will be followed by the main event at 9 p.m. with four matchups planned for the fight card. For those of you looking to watch Bellator 258 online live, the prelims will air on CBS and YouTube, while the main card will broadcast via Showtime and the CBS Sports Network.


The main attraction at Bellator 258 is recently crowned bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta (25-2, 11 KOs), who won the vacant title last September at Bellator 246 when he defeated Patrick “Patchy” Mix via unanimous decision. Bellator 258 will mark Archuleta’s first title defense; challenging him for the belt will be Sergio Pettis (20-5, 3 KOs), Bellator’s top-ranked bantamweight fighter who sits just below the champ himself in the league’s official rankings.

For the co-main, veteran UFC knockout artist Anthony Johnson (22-6, 16 KOs) will be making his Bellator debut against Jose Augusto (7-2, 5 KOs) in an elimination match for the Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix Tournament. Johnson was initially scheduled to face Yoel Romero, another UFC veteran making his debut with the league, until Romero had to withdraw from the event due to a medical issue. Whoever wins this elimination bout will go on to face current Bellator light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov.

There are 12 fights planned in total, and you can check out the entire lineup below. Then, sign up for Showtime or the CBS Sports Network so you can stream Bellator 258 live on Friday.

UFC 273 is here, and it's happening tonight. Alexander Volkanovski is taking on The Korean Zombie starting at 10 p.m. ET at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville Florida. If you're looking to watch live on the right UFC channel then you've come to the right place. We'll tell you exactly how and where to stream the event and what it's going to cost you. But first, some of the highlights. Besides the main card, Aljamain Sterling is taking on Petr Yan in a Bantamweight title bout, Burns is going head-to-head with Chimaev in a standard Welterweight bout, and the Women's Strawweight bout will feature Dern vs. Torres. As one of the biggest pay-per-view events for April, you'll need to pay up if you want to live stream the UFC fight. Here's everything you need to know about it, including where you can tune in.

These days, all UFC pay-per-views air live only on ESPN+ which means they're not available, legally, on any other networks. It is worth mentioning that only the main card is considered the pay-per-view event, so you'll need to sign-up for ESPN+ if you want to watch the big one: For tonight that's Volkanovski vs. The Korean Zombie. The main card, or the big fight, starts at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. Of course, that's not the only fight happening tonight. The early prelims and preliminary card fights are also airing on ESPN+, but you can watch those elsewhere if you want. A local pub, maybe?
