Henry Corrales vs. Brandon Girtz set for co-main event

Bellator 250 finally has a co-main event.

Henry Corrales will take on Brandon Girtz on Oct. 29 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., a promotion official told MMA Junkie.

The fight will be contested at featherweight.

Corrales (17-5 MMA, 5-5 BMMA) will look to rebound from back-to-back losses. After losing to Darrion Caldwell by unanimous decision in the opening round of the Bellator featherweight grand prix, Corrales was defeated by then-future Bellator bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta – also by unanimous decision.

Girtz (16-9 MMA, 8-7 BMMA) has alternated wins and losses over the span of his last four fights. After knocking out Luka Jelcic, Girtz was finished via submission by Michael Chandler. He bounced back at Bellator 219, defeating Saad Awad by unanimous decision, before losing a unanimous decision to Myles Jury in February 2020.

Corrales first announced the booking in an interview with The Scrap in early October.

The Bellator 250 main card airs on CBS Sports Network after prelims streamed on MMA Junkie.

With the addition, the Bellator 250 lineup includes:

Gegard Mousasi vs. Douglas Lima – for the Bellator middleweight title
Henry Corrales vs. Brandon Girtz
Sabah Homasi vs. Bobby Voelker
Cody Law vs. Orlando Ortega
Johnny Eblen vs. Taylor Johnson
Nick Newell vs. Zach Zane
Brandon Carlton vs. Jake Hager
