CODY LAW vs KENNY CHAMPION / Featherweight Preliminary Bout / BELLATOR 254


On December 10, 2020 at the Mohegan Sun Arena two talented northeast area fighters will meet in pro MMA featherweight action at Bellator 254. 

Kenny “Rise of the Phoenix” Champion is an exciting fighter who is riding a strong three fight winning streak.  Champion is (2-0) in the cage as a professional with both victories coming by way of first round KO/TKO finish. Champion is a believer in hard work and he demonstrates it in every fight.  Kenny has smooth standup and accurate striking.  He is a smart fighter with good presence.  The Connecticut warrior has a background that includes Muay Thai and grappling.  He has sharpened his abilities with each fight and is ready for what many believe to be his biggest challenge to date inside the steel cage. With enormous challenges come enormous rewards.  Champion will be given the opportunity under the shining lights of Bellator to introduce a worldwide audience to the “Rise of the Phoenix”.

Cody Law carries serious skills.  He is a very well rounded fighter and brings a (1-0) pro record into the bout.  The Pennsylvania athlete made his professional debut at Bellator 250 with a big first round finish over Orlando Ortega via D’Arce choke.  Cody shined as an amateur producing a (5-0) record before turning pro in November of this year.   The twenty-five year old is riding the momentum of an impressive six fight winning streak and trains under American Top Team.  Cody wields stout wrestling and a tenacious attitude.  He has quick, hard effective hands in standup exchanges and can distribute a potent right.  Cody is dangerous on his feet and on the ground.  He made a solid impact on the Bellator scene in his debut and has shown he is clearly ready to evolve to the next level. 

KENNY CHAMPION vs CODY LAW set to collide at BELLATOR 254

This could turn out to be an important bout for both up and coming 145 pounders. Despite the featherweight matchup being scheduled as a preliminary bout do not be surprised if this fight produces as much excitement and energy as the main event. This fight has what it takes to be an explosive matchup, two hungry young guns eager to unload, and when the smoke clears we will find out who will walk away the winner.  It is fair to say both Law and Champion have what it takes.  Both have the tools to end it and neither fighter should overlook or underestimate the other.  There is little doubt both of these gladiators will leave it all in the cage come December 10, 2020.  Who wins this fight?  The lion with the greatest hunger.
