“Darth” Bader returns at Bellator 244

Ryan “Darth” Bader will finally defend his Bellator MMA Light Heavyweight Championship against Vadim Nemkov at Bellator 244 (via Alexey Safanov), his first defence since November 3rd, 2017 when he successfully retained against Linton Vassell at Bellator 186.

During those nearly 3 years Bader has gone on to win the Heavyweight Grand Prix & the Heavyweight Championship in the process making him a 2 Division World Champion, boasting wins against Matt Mitrione, King Mo & the legend himself Fedor Emelianenko in which he stopped him inside of 35 seconds at Bellator 214.

Bader currently boasts a professional MMA record of 27-5-0-1 while Nemkov’s reads 11-2-0, both fighters are undefeated under the Bellator banner.

Both fighters have split decision victories over Phil Davis & a whole host of finishes on the Belator resume so look for this one to be a top quality affair.

Bellator 244 wil go down on Friday, August 21 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut where the Bader vs Nemkov title fight will act as the Main Event fight.
