Bolton MMA star Saul Rogers returns to action on Saturday in Paris.

The 30-year-old faces Arbi Mezhidov on the big Bellator 248 card that is being streamed on the BBC iPlayer.

Rogers is looking to bounce back from defeat against Daniel Weichel in September 2019 out in California, a fight that was part of Bellator’s Featherweight World Grand Prix.

Rogers and his Russian opponent this weekend have identical records of 13 wins and three defeats although Mezhidov, making his debut for the promotion, has lost just one of his last 10 fights.

The action from the Accor Arena in the French capital, headlined by Michael ‘Venom’ Page against Ross Houston, is live on the iPlayer from 4.30pm.
