It’s time to continue to the Bellator Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix tournament. Four men remain in contention to be crowned champion and claim the $1 million prize for winning the finals and all four will be in action on Saturday night.

Current champion Vadim Nemkov is back when he takes on late replacement Julius Anglickas in the main event. Anglickas steps up for Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, who was forced to withdraw with a serious illness. Johnson scored a TKO over Jose Augusto in the first round of the tournament to advance. Nemkov, meanwhile, earned a unanimous decision over former champion Phil Davis in the opening round. 

In the co-main event, current heavyweight king Ryan Bader is back when he takes on Corey Anderson in the other semifinal. Bader beat Lyoto Machida in his first bout of the tournament while Anderson took out Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov. Bader is hoping for a rematch against Nemkov after the Russian finished him off viciously to claim the 205-pound title in August 2020. Bader is one of just two Bellator champions ever to be a simultaneous two-division titleholder.
