Round 2: Front kick from Mix as he follows Archuleta across the cage. Mix shoots drops levels and gets the takedown at 36 seconds, looking for an inverted triangle as he ends up on Archuleta’s back.

Round 5: Archuleta is just mercilessly ripping to the body for the first minute of the round. One wonders how many more of these Mix can take before he folds in half. You can tell it’s sucking the energy and life out of Mix. He’s not going for the takedowns. He’s not even able to chase Archuleta down.

You should note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. Although major sporting events like Bellator 267 are often available via shady streaming sites, we advise against using these. The video is often laggy and low-resolution, plus there’s always a chance that the stream could be taken offline partway through for copyright violation. As such, you might not even get to see the entire event. With several international broadcasters available, there’s no need to use unreliable, unauthorized streaming sites.
All of the services showing Lima vs MVP 2 are region-locked. This means you’ll need a VPN to access your usual home services when traveling abroad.
How to live stream Bellator 267 online with a VPN
While VPNs can seem intimidating at first, they actually make it very easy to unblock geo-restricted sites and services. Just follow the steps below to unblock the Bellator live stream from abroad.
Here’s how to watch the Bellator London live stream online:
- First, sign up for a suitable VPN. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are both strong choices too.
