Former UFC featherweight Myles Jury recently signed with Bellator and will be put into headliner status right away.
Jury only signed with the Santa Monica-based promotion a couple of days ago and appearing on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on Monday, revealed he would headline Bellator 227 against Benson Henderson in a lightweight contest.
“I’m happy to continue my MMA journey with Bellator,” Jury said in a statement. “I’m excited to return to work against a guy like Benson [Henderson] and immediately make an impact in Bellator’s lightweight division. I’m only 30 years old and still believe that my best years are ahead of me.”

Similar to Bellator London and Bellator 223 last month, the two events will be broadcast through multiple outlets and follow a similar schedule:
