This weekend at Bellator Kickboxing 10 we’re set to see one of the best fights of the year in Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Chingiz Allazov. Allazov has been rising up the ranks at lightweight, losing to Sitthichai in 2014 and going on — get this — a 28-fight win streak. Heading into this bout with Petrosyan there’s no doubt that this is the best competition that Petrosyan has faced since either 2015 or 2016 (depending on your view of Josh Jauncey or Jordan Watson), and one of those rare dream matches in kickboxing that is looking like it might actually happen.

Also featured will be a Featherweight World Championship bout between Kevin Ross and Gabriel Varga, yet another big fight that hasn’t been able to come together elsewhere for years, but will now happen under the Bellator Kickboxing banner on Saturday. Both Ross and Varga have had their ups and downs in their careers, but are still two of the very best at featherweight and have fought literally everybody without fear.
