Bellator takes over the prime Saturday night slot this weekend with an event in Rosemont, Illinois. And to their credit, with the UFC not on the schedule this weekend, they’re taking advantage of the spotlight with a marquee fight... even if it’s a few years later than most would want it to be. Fedor Emelianenko is taking on former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, in Mir’s first bout since his USADA suspension back in 2016. Accompanying the notable names are a bevy of fighters Bellator is looking to shine a spotlight on, including Neiman Gracie & Dillon Danis.
