Bellator announces star-studded tournament to crown new heavyweight champion

Bellator MMA has been without a heavyweight champion since mid-2016 when Vitaly Minakov was stripped of the title due to inactivity. However, a new champion is expected to be crowned late next year after the promotion outlined details of an eight-man tournament to determine the new top dog in the organisation.

The fighters scheduled to compete are:

Fedor Emelianenko (36-5)
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson (37-12)
Chael Sonnen (29-15-1)
Ryan Bader (24-5)
Muhammad Lawal (21-6)
Roy Nelson (23-14)
Frank Mir (18-11)
Matt Mitrione (12-5)

Well Minakov is content with fighting in Russia so thats that.



Yeah, I would easily get rid of Bader (who only fought once heavier then 205, because Rampage missed weight), Sonnen (natural LHW), and even King MO.

Replace them with Lashley (if he wants to test himself against legit legends of the sport), Kongo, and Sergei.

Would be a little more balanced in my opinion.
