5 reasons to watch Bellator 205 with a still-rising star and title contenders in Boise

Bellator returns to action on Friday with Bellator 205. In the main event, rising featherweight star, A.J. McKee headlines his first stateside fight card. The 11-0 McKee puts the longest winning streak in promotional history on the line against the much more experienced John Teixeira.

In the co-main event, two of more exciting fighters in the middleweight division, John Salter and Rafael Lovato Jr., who have combined for 22 stoppage victories, face off in a fight that could determine the next middleweight title challenger.

Patricky Freire, who also hopes to parlay a win at Bellator 205 into a title shot, faces Roger Huerta in a lightweight scrap.
