Bellator takes the spotlight this week for major MMA shows. What was supposed to be a two-title fight night has taken a bit of a hit with the loss of Gegard Mousasi vs. Rafael Lovato Jr., but the card still has Aaron Pico vs. Henry Corrales, the debut of Jack Swagger, and the finale of the heavyweight grand prix. Fedor Emelianenko faces off against Ryan Bader in the main event. The former UFC heavyweight will take on the all-time great to decide the promotion’s new champion in the 265 lb division. Throw the MMA debut of AJ Agazarm in there and it should make for a memorable event.
