Recently Bellator buzzed the MMA world by announcing it’s holding a grand-prix tournament throughout 2018, which will crown the promotion’s new heavyweight champ.
The reason the news quickly made headlines, is because it will feature the likes of Fedor Emelianenko (36-5, 1 NC), “Rampage” Jackson (37-12), Chael Sonnen (30-15-1), Roy Nelson (23-14), Frank Mir (18-11), “King Mo” Lawal (21-6, 1 NC), Matt Mitrione (12-5) and Bellator light heavyweight champ Ryan Bader(24-5). Now that’s a lot of star power.
