A heavyweight fight is the latest addition to Bellator 271.
Mowry (9-0 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) has a 100 percent finishing rate through nine professional fights, including five submissions and four TKOs. Thus far in Bellator, the 6-foot-8 heavyweight has defeated Ben Moa, Darion Abbey, Gokhan Saricam, Shawn Teed and Shaun Asher.
Cleveland (22-13-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) has signed a multifight deal with Bellator, according to promotion officials. The PFL alum is coming off three straight wins, including a viral head kick knockout (and celebratory dance) against Kelvin Fital in August.
With the addition, the Bellator 271 lineup includes:
Champion Cris Cyborg vs. Sinead Kavanagh – for women’s featherweight title
Justin Gonzales vs. Aaron Pico
Rakim Cleveland vs. Steve Mowry
Arlene Blencowe vs. Pam Sorenson
