The Bellator Light Heavyweight tournament final between Vadim Nemkov and Corey Anderson is expected to take place this first quarter. It was the organization’s president, Scott Coker, who gave this information during an interview for MMA Junkie.

“We think this fight will take place in late February or early March, something like that,” he said. “We’re trying to fix the date right now. But we want to end this tournament and organize this fight. Both men think it’s a very good date. So we’ll probably have something to announce in the next couple of weeks. We will then establish the programming of this fight. “

“These two guys are amazing,” Coker continued. “In these tournaments, you never know what’s going to happen. I’ve always thought that in tournaments like this you have to let the best win. They’re both going to fight for a million bucks, so there’s a lot of reason to outdo each other. It’s going to be a great payday for these guys, and I think winning this tournament is quite an accomplishment when you look at the eight athletes we had to start. It was a hell of a challenge. “

Vadim Nemkov (14-2), current division champion, joined the final by eliminating Phil Davis and then Julius Anglickas. Unbeaten since 2016, the Russian will appear in the costume of the favorite.
