How to watch Bellator 251: Melvin Manhoef vs. Corey Anderson

Bellator 251 is set to air live from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Thursday, Nov. 5.

Coming on the heels of an explosive Bellator 250 event, which saw Gegard Mousasi outlast Douglas Lima to become a two-time middleweight champion, the company looks to deliver again with Bellator 251: Melvin Manhoef vs. Corey Anderson.

You can watch the Bellator 251 main card live on CBS Sports Network and DAZN. The card is scheduled to go live at 7 p.m ET on Nov. 5. The preliminary card is also available on, Bellator MMA Youtube channel, and DAZN, starting at 4:45 p.m. ET.

Legend Manhoef (31-14-1, 2 NC) enters the contest riding the momentum of a two-win streak as he faces off against the former UFC middleweight contender, Anderson (13-5). He enters Bellator looking to wipe his slate clean in the eyes of MMA fans around the world.

His last bout in the UFC was a first-round knockout against current UFC light heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz. Following the loss, he requested his release from the promotion and signed almost immediately with Bellator. His time with the UFC was strife with controversy from his being fined for 10,000 dollars following his win at UFC 244 to his being open about wanting a title fight for the UFC middleweight title and not being given the opportunity.
