Bellator Paris takes place today, Friday May 12th, at the Accor Arena in Paris, France.

The main event will feature former two-time Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi (49-8 MMA) taking on top contender Fabian Edwards (11-2 MMA) in a five round battle.

The 37-year-old Mousasi had won 4 in a row before being defeated by Johnny Eblen (13-0 MMA) last June at Bellator 282. Mousasi is one of the most experienced fighters in the game, with over 70 pro fights to his credit.

Edwards, 30, has 2 wins and 2 losses coming into the fight with ‘The Dreamcatcher‘. Edwards last victory came via way of unanimous decision against Charlie Ward (10-6 MMA) at Bellator 287 in October of last year.

Speaking during a pre-fight press conference, Edwards shared that with a victory over Mousasi, he will or should earn a shot at the title saying:

“I want a title shot, that’s it. I don’t really look at him as a like a legend or anything like that, in my eyes. He is just another man, and on Friday night I am going to go in there, put hands on him and that’s it.”

‘The Assassin’ concluded with:

“I don’t really mind what he takes me for. On Friday I am going to go in there and put hands on him he will see. So, I don’t really care if he is looking over me.”
