“Bellator 153: Koreshkov vs. Henderson” airs live and free on Spike at 8:00pm EST while preliminary bouts will stream live on Bellator.com and The Bellator Mobile App.

Bellator 153 will feature the debut of Benson "Smooth" Henderson where he will face current welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov for the title!

Henderson has accomplished a great deal over the course of his 10-year professional career as a mixed martial artist. A former World Extreme Cagefighting and Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight titleist, “Smooth” holds black belts in both taekwondo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and also earned NAIA All-American honors in both 2005 and 2006. Multiple media outlets named Henderson the fighter of the year in 2012 and he has been one half of several epic battles that have received "Fight of the Year" accolades: Donald Cerrone (2009), Anthony Pettis (2010), Frankie Edgar (2012), and Brandon Thatch (2015).

Standing opposite of Bellator MMA's newest acquisition will be Koreshkov, a 25-year-old fighter out of Russia who took the title from Douglas Lima during a main event bout at Bellator 140: Lima vs. Koreshkov in July of last year. With only one defeat on his impressive resume, "Spartan's" first title defense will likely put him in the position of underdog, a spot that champions rarely find themselves heading into a matchup. With 13 finishes in 18 victories, the 10-fight Bellator MMA veteran will attempt to stop a fighter who has only lost by knockout or submission three times in 28 outings.
