Bellator 288 comes around with two big title fights as headliners on November 18, 2022, from Chicago’s Wintrust Arena.
The main event will see a rematch between Vadim Nemkov and Corey Anderson after their first bout ended in a no-contest due to an accidental headbutt. The bout is also the final of Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix with the winner bagging $1 million in prize money. Both men have remained undefeated so far in Bellator. Who will suffer their first loss in the promotion?
The co-main event will feature Patricky “Pitbull” Friere defending Lightweight title against Usman Nurmagomedov. Pitbull won the title with a revenge win over Peter Queally after his older brother Patrick Friere vacated it. For Nurmagomedov, it will be a good chance to shut off the narrative that he got the title shot only due to his cousin Khabib and not due to his 15-0 record. Who will emerge victorious from Bellator 288?
Tune in below from 6 PM EST onwards as we post results live from Bellator 288: Nemkov vs Anderson 2 event from both prelims and main card.
