Bellator MMA gets back to the cage on Friday, October 21, 2016 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. The event will air live in prime time on Spike TV, but you can catch the live preliminary bouts right here on Press Box Insider.

Bellator 162 is headlined by middlewieghts Alexander Shlemenko and Kendall Grove, marking Shlemenko’s first bout since February of 2015. Shlemenko, who has been under suspension for banned substance use by the California State Athletic Commission, has fought twice this year under the M1 Challenge flag, coming away with two victories in that promotion. Grove, the winner of Season 3 of The Ultimate Fighter, has seen his arm raised in three of his last four Bellator bouts.

In the co-main event, wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley will square off against Josh Appelt. Lashley will enter the cage on a seven-fight winning streak, while Appelt returns to Bellator coming off of back-to-back victories.
