Bellator 288 video: Nemkov, Anderson get face to face before $1 million title final

CHICAGO – All the pre-fight festivities are wrapped, and after a seven-month wait, Bellator should have a new tournament winner Friday.

Light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov (15-2 MMA, 7-1 BMMA) meets challenger Corey Anderson (16-5 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) in the $1 million grand prix final in the Bellator 288 main event.

Thursday, the two got face to face for the first time since their April fight that ended in a no contest, which necessitated Friday’s rematch at Wintrust Arena in Chicago. The main card airs on Showtime following prelims on MMA Junkie.

Check out their faceoff from the ceremonial weigh-ins in the video above.
