Bellator 288 Results: Nemkov vs. Anderson 2

Bellator MMA will hold Bellator 288 tonight from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois.

In the main event, Bellator light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov and Corey Anderson rematch in a fight for the belt and winner of the $1 million light heavyweight grand prix. Their first bout ended in a no-contest after an accidental headbutt from Anderson at Bellator 277.

In the co-main event, lightweight champ Patricky Pitbull defends his title against Usman Nurmagomedov.

Pitbull (24-10) won the Bellator lightweight title in his last belt when he stopped Peter Queally. Pitbull has been on the Bellator roster since 2011 and he has been one of the best fighters in the promotion over the years. He has defeated opponents such as Josh Thomson, Benson Henderson, and Roger Huerta over the years. It all culminated in him winning the Bellator lightweight title against Queally last year.

Nurmagomedov (15-0) is an unbeaten prospect who is the cousin of former UFC lightweight champion Usman Nurmagomedov. The younger Nurmagomedov is undefeated just like his famous cousin, as he holds a 15-0 record in MMA, including a 4-0 Bellator record. He has been finishing everyone in his path in the last few fights, and he looks like someone who could definitely be a champion for Bellator.
