PHOENIX – The Bellator gentle heavyweight grand prix continues with the match semifinals.
Bellator 268 takes place Saturday at Footprint Center. The important card airs on Showtime after prelims on MMA Junkie. Atop the billing, Bellator gentle heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov (13-2 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) defends his title towards match alternate Julius Anglickas (10-1 MMA, 3-0 BMMA).
In the co-main occasion, former UFC gentle heavyweight contenders Ryan Bader (28-6 MMA, 6-1 BMMA) and Corey Anderson (15-5 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) meet contained in the Bellator cage for the prospect to advance to the match remaining – and get a title shot, too.
