After a great UFC 270 and a fight for the heavyweight champion, we are taking a break from the UFC this week, but that’s why we’ll find out the heavyweight champion in Bellator.! The event takes place at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Let us talk about upcoming fights and see how top-rated betting sites UK rate fighters will compete in this event.
Bader vs. Moldavsky
Bader returns to heavyweight fighting after a prolonged time. He fought in the light heavyweight division in the last three fights, where he was also the champion. But first, he was beaten by Vadim Nemkov, then he competed in Bellator’s Grand Prix light heavyweight and lost to Corey Anderson in the semifinals. His opponent is Valentin Moldavsky, a student of the famous Fedor Emelianenko. Interestingly, Bader knocked out Fedor with difficulty and won the title in Bellator, so Moldavsky will have the opportunity to avenge his teacher and win the belt, 2 in 1.
There can only be 1️⃣ Heavyweight World Champion! 👑

Moldavsky is a two-time world champion in Samba and is a modern version of Fedor Bader. He doesn’t hit as hard and crazy as Fedor, but he controls his opponent brilliantly with a wire, he quickly knocks down opponents and inflicts damage on the ground. The only defeat he suffered in the Rizin final was against the Iranian Aliakbari, a slightly questionable decision. Moldavsky is great with his Samba; he added a new segment, that is, control by the wire; thanks to his strength, he controls most of his opponents, collects precious points, and when he feels that the opponent is already tired enough, he finishes. In addition to his excellent condition, he showed that he also has a firm beard, but this time she will be on the biggest exam, especially knowing what kind of bombs Bader has in his fists.
The co-main event is a lightweight fight between former UFC and WEC champion Benson Henderson and Dagestani Islam Mammadov. The popular Band does not fight in good form recently. After unsuccessful attempts to win first Bellator’s belt in the welter category and then in the lightweight category, he recorded four victories. New hope was born that it was the old Bendo again, but then he recorded three smooth defeats again, the last by Brent Primus, who would be in the TOP 15 in the overweight UFC lightweight category.
Mammadov is a fighter who built his way to the top through lesser-known organizations, mostly fighting in Russia and Asia, but how dangerous he is is also shown by the fact that he fought his first fight in Bellator against the aforementioned Primus and defeated him. Mammadov is very physically dominant for the lightweight category, cardio, wrestling, as well as most Dagestanis. The Band will be in trouble if they do not respond to Mamed’s pressure, and with this victory, Mamedov would join the fight for the belt after only two fights. Will Henderson manage to be the old one, or is it finally time to retire. Either way, Bendo has given a lot to the MMA sport, and with Demetrious Johnson, which categories under 70kg have gained so much in popularity.
