watch Bellator live online

Bellator 301: Amosov vs. Jackson will take place at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois, USA on Friday, November 17, 2023. The main card is expected to start at around 10 PM ET (3 AM BST). Below, we’ll let you know how to watch Bellator 301 live online, whether you’re at home or abroad. According to various sources, including Ariel Helwani, this may be your last chance to watch a Bellator event because it seems that the entire promotion is set to be dissolved (alongside Showtime) after failing to find a buyer to take it off Paramount’s hands.

You should note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. Although major sporting events like Bellator 301 are often available via shady streaming sites, we advise against using them. The video is often laggy and low-resolution, plus there’s always a chance that the stream could be taken offline partway through for copyright violation. As such, you might not get to watch the entire event. With several international broadcasters available, there’s no need to use unreliable, unauthorized streaming sites.

All of the services showing Amosov vs. Jackson are region-locked. This means you’ll need a VPN to access your usual home services when traveling abroad.

How to watch Bellator 301 on UK TV

Having left Sky Sports, Bellator matches are now exclusively shown on BBC iPlayer. This service is completely free to use, although you will have to create an account first. This requires providing some personal details including a UK postal code (any UK postal code is accepted, however).

BBC iPlayer is geo-restricted, so you’ll have to be in the UK or using a British VPN server to watch the fights. The good news is that you can do so completely free of charge on vacation anywhere in the world.

Additionally, you’re required to have a TV license to stream BBC iPlayer content live or on-demand (although the BBC iPlayer website occasionally fails to verify this).


How to watch Bellator 301 on Australian TV

MMA fans in Australia can stream this match live and for free on 10play (the stream begins on Saturday, August 12 at 6 AM AEST). This service does require you to create an account beforehand, but this only takes a minute. Replays will be available shortly after the event finishes, so there’s no need to worry if you miss any of the action.

10play is region-locked and only available in Australia. To watch it while traveling abroad, you’ll need to connect to a VPN server in the country for an Australian IP address.

Is Bellator 301 the last Bellator ever?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question appears to be yes. Paramount, which owns Showtime has decided to shut down Bellator. Initially, it was believed that the broadcaster would try to sell the promotion, but due to the promotion’s lackluster track record, the promotion was unable to secure a buyer. For this reason, it seems that Bellator will be shut down indefinitely and any fighters currently signed to the promotion will need to find work elsewhere.

It seems likely that some of the best talent in Bellator should be able to find their way onto the UFC’s roster. However, there is only so much room for new fighters in an already crammed UFC roster, so some fighters may need to branch out into the PFL or other MMA promotions. Either way, it seems that 301 may be your last chance to tune in and watch Bellator.
