Bellator returns to Southern California later this month, and the promotion is producing a special “Countdown” series.
Bellator 214 takes place Jan. 26 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The card airs on Paramount and streams on DAZN.
In the main event, light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader (26-5 MMA, 4-0 BMMA) goes after a second concurrent title when he meets the legendary Fedor Emelianenko (38-5 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) in the final of Bellator’s heavyweight grand prix. The winner will become the promotion’s new heavyweight champion.
Here’s the promotion’s description of the first “Bellator 214 Countdown” episode.
