PHOENIX – The desk is about for Saturday’s Bellator 268 occasion after the conclusion of ceremonial weigh-ins.
Hours after the athletes formally weighed in on Friday morning, the ceremonial session befell the place the 11 scheduled matchups had a closing faceoff.
The stakes are excessive atop the cardboard, which takes place at Footprint Center and airs on Showtime following prelims on MMA Junkie, with the semifinals of the sunshine heavyweight grand prix set to unfold. Champ Vadim Nemkov (13-2 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) places his 205-pound belt on the road vs. match alternate Julius Anglickas (10-1 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) on one aspect of the bracket, whereas Ryan Bader (28-6 MMA, 6-1 BMMA) and Corey Anderson (15-4 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) conflict on the opposing aspect.
Everyone has remained largely skilled within the lead-up to combat night time, and issues had been no distinction on the staredowns.
