Where To Watch: Bellator 288: Vadim Nemkov Vs. Corey Anderson II
It airs tonight at 6 p.m. ET.
Corey Anderson will get another chance.
After being moments away from upsetting light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov, Anderson will face Nemkov for the second time and have a shot at avenging their No Contest in April.
In the co-main event, Usman Nurmagomedov is looking to carry on the legacy of his uncle, Abdulmanap, Khabib’s father, by winning the Bellator lightweight title from Patricky Pitbull.
“For me [this fight], it’s all the hopes and dreams my uncle has put into me,” Usman told MMA Fighting.
“I just don’t want to let him down. I want to take this belt, inshallah, and it put in our school of Abdulmanap.”
“Khabib is a clear copy of his father as a coach.
“There’s some little things that are missing from his dad but he pushes us very hard for training. He mentally helps us. He energizes us. But I think that Khabib is a copy of his father as a coach.”
Usman faces the older Pitbull brother in Bellator 288’s co-main event.
