Bellator is back at it on Saturday night, this time for Bellator 208 live at Nassau Coliseum.
The main event will feature a semifinal bout in the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix, as Fedor Emelianenko takes on “The American Gangster,” Chael Sonnen. The co-main event features former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, as he takes on Bellator mainstay Saad Awad.
Russian middleweights Alexander Shlemenko and Anatoly Tokov will compete in what could be a passing of the torch fight in Russian MMA. Shlemenko will look to deny Tokov taking the next step.
