Kickboxing standout Hesdy Gerges meets Domingos Barros in Bellator 211 co-main event

Bellator’s return to Italy in December now has its co-main event.

Kickboxing veteran Hesdy Gerges (0-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) will make his MMA debut in a heavyweight bout against Domingos Barros (5-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) at Bellator 211. A promotion official today told MMAjunkie of the fight.

Bellator 211 takes place Dec. 1 at RDS Stadium in Genoa. The main card will air live on Paramount at 4 p.m. ET and will stream on DAZN following prelims on MMAjunkie. In addition, the Bellator Kickboxing 11 event will stream on Bellator’s mobile app at noon ET.

The event will be Bellator’s sixth trip to Italy overall. It has put on fight cards previously in Rome, Florence and Turin.

In the Bellator 211 main event, veteran Italian fighter Alessio Sakara (19-12 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) will take on Kent Kauppinen (10-4 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in a light heavyweight bout.

Gerges is a former GLORY and K-1 kickboxer and is the husband of Bellator kickboxing champion Denise Kielholtz. His kickboxing career includes 50 wins, including 23 by knockout. Barros made his MMA debut in 2014 in his native Portugal. In 2017, he picked up a pair of wins, including a knockout in his most recent fight this past December.
