At Bellator 291 in Dublin, Yaroslav Amosov defeated Logan Storley by majority decision to make a successful comeback to mixed martial arts.
In his first battle since participating in the Ukrainian army’s defense against the Russian invasion, the welterweight champion maintained his championship.
Amosov, 28, gave a nearly flawless effort while remaining focused and relentless.
Amosov, who devoted his victory to Ukraine, received a unanimous 50-45 from the three judges.
Amosov declared, “Ukrainian people, I adore you.” “I would like to express my gratitude to the Ukrainian troops for defending my nation. Kindly keep in mind what is going on in Ukraine.”
On the weekend of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine one year ago, Amosov returned to the Bellator cage.
He rushed to get his family across the border safely a year ago.
