The second MMA show of the Friday night trifecta finds the Bellator MMA cage in a familiar spot: Thackerville, OK’s Winstar World Casino for Bellator 239.

It’s the first show of a weekend twin-bill for Bellator, as Saturday, the promotion will set up in Dublin, Ireland for another installment of its European Series, Bellator 240/ Bellator Dublin.

Coverage of Bellator 239 will begin this Friday at 6:15 p.m. EST, 3:15 p.m. PST on DAZN, www.bellator.com/live, the Bellator MMA app, and the Bellator MMA YouTube channel.

In total, Bellator 239 will feature 17 MMA fights, so postlims are a possibility following the card’s main event.

Speaking of that main event, it takes place in the Bellator MMA Welterweight division.

Ed Ruth (8-1) fights Yaroslav Amosov (22-0) In the three-round headliner.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into the Friday night headliner in Oklahoma, Yaroslav Amosov is the taller contender, standing at six feet even, one inch taller than Ed Ruth’s 5-foot-11 frame.

How they got here:

Ed Ruth has gone 4-1 in his last five Bellator MMA appearances, entering the main event on a two-fight winning streak.

Most recently, he defeated Jason Jackson (split decision) on Oct. 25 during Bellator 231’s main card on Paramount Network and DAZN.

In the other corner, Yaroslav Amosov has yet to lose professionally, winning in his last fight against David Rickels (second-round submission, D’arce choke) in the perfect show that was Bellator 225 on Aug. 24, 2019 on DAZN in the main card.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that Ed Ruth has a four-inch reach advantage (79 inches to 75 inches) over Yaroslav Amosov heading into this Welterweight headliner this Friday night.

Prediction: Yaroslav Amosov by unanimous decision.
