Bellator 268 open workouts video: Vadim Nemkov, other tournament participants crack pads

PHOENIX – Bellator light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov and the three other remaining participants in the promotion’s current grand prix partook in an open workout Wednesday.

Bellator 268 takes place Saturday at Footprint Center. The main card airs on Showtime after prelims on MMA Junkie.

Nemkov (13-2 MMA, 6-0 BMMA), along with opponent Julius Anglickas (10-1 MMA, 3-0 BMMA), and co-main event participants Corey Anderson (15-5 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) and Ryan Bader (28-6 MMA, 6-1 BMMA), joined former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (28-10 MMA, 5-5 BMMA) and his wife Maria (1-0 amateur) in the open-to-reporters event.

The Hendersons kicked things off, with Benson holding pads for Maria, before the four light heavyweight participants hit pads and faced off. Check out the open workout highlights of the light heavyweights in the video above – and watch a clip of the Hendersons’ workout below.
