A.J. McKee vs. Patricio „Pitbull“ Freire

Bellator’s 277 event overshadowed even the UFC’s Fight Night this weekend, and we believe most of the MMA fans will be watching more closely what’s going on in San Jose. Two championship fights, and a handful of great matches. The event is led by a match for the champion in the lightweight category between, so to speak, a local guy from California and the undefeated champion A.J. McKee, and the challenger Patricio Freire! The second championship fight is the final of the Bellator Grand Prix in the light heavyweight category, between Vadim Nemkov and the former UFC member, Corey Anderson.

After McKee quickly finished Pitbull in the final of the Grand Prix in the lightweight category and became the new Bellator champion, the organization decided to immediately give revenge to its multiple champion and one of the biggest stars in the organization. Absolutely deserved, fortunately for many Bellator fans, but also betting sites and bettors.

McKee is an undefeated fighter. He has 18 victories in his pro career, he has fought all his fights in Bellator, which speaks of his quality, as well as the quality of his opponents. A very complete and attractive fighter. Primarily his martial arts background is BJJ and grappling. But he is far from being a classic grappler, who fights to survive in the stand and transfers the fight to the ground at all costs. His stand-up is great and attractive. He is also very physically strong for this category, he uses his explosiveness great for demolition and changes of position on the ground floor.

Pitbull is a longtime Bellator champion and the first Bellator champion in two weight categories. He has been in professional MMA fights since 2004, for almost 20 years. And for the first time in his career that someone beat him so easily. He started his career at the famous Chute Boxe Academy with Belfort and Silva, from where he probably got that style of fighting and the nickname Pitbull. He keeps going forward and doesn’t give up. In addition to aggressive boxing, Pitbull is a master of BJJ, he trained BJJ with the Nogueira brothers for a long time.

Vadim Nemkov vs. Corey Anderson

The final fight of Bellator’s GP in the light heavyweight division brings a fight between Russian champion Vadim Nemkov and former UFC fighter Corey Anderson. After they both defeated their respectable opponents, it was their turn to fight each other and find out who would take home the Bellator Champion’s belt and $ 1 million, which follows as a prize to the champion. This million is a real bonus for these fighters, and it shows how serious Bellator is.

Vadim Nemkov is a student of the famous Fedor. The master is Samba, a martial art that is the forerunner of MMA. Where a combination of kickboxing and wrestling is widely used. Nemkov uses low kicks a lot in the stand, controls the distance, and does classic kickboxing. The wrestling section is perfectly adapted to his stance. He forces throws from the clinch or takes the back and throws the opponent. He won the title by defeating Ryan Bader heavyweight champion. On the way to the finals, he defeated Davis, quite hard to decide, and Anglickas in the fourth round.

Corey Anderson moved from the UFC to Bellator as a respectable name, after losing to Blachowicz, who later became champion. Anderson defeated the timeless and always awkward Manhoef on his Bellator debut, while on the way to the GP final, Yagshimuradov, and then Ryan Bader in the semifinals. Anderson is a good wrestler, but he forces his wrestling the most by controlling his opponent along the line.
