Bellator 268: Nemkov vs Anglickas

Bellator 268: Nemkov vs. Anglickas is a mixed martial arts event produced by the Bellator MMA that is expected to take place on October 16, 2021, at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Although there remains a lot of unknowns entering the main event of Saturday’s Bellator 268 card pairing light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov against late replacement Julius Anglickas in the semifinals of the World Grand Prix tournament, the co-main event might be the sneakiest fight on the card from the standpoint of intrigue.

Former 205-pound champion and current heavyweight king Ryan Bader (28-6, 1 NC) continues his journey to regain his title when he enters as a slight underdog against red-hot fellow UFC veteran Corey Anderson. The winner advances to the tournament final and a chance at both the Bellator light heavyweight title and the $1 million prize.

A great deal of the build toward Anderson’s third visit to the Bellator cage since signing as a free agent in 2020 surrounds the repeated comments “Overtime” has made about previously dominating Bader in sparring sessions. Anderson has regularly closed topics on their history by uttering the cryptic phrase, “Bader and his team know what happened.”

So what exactly did happen? Bader, who joined “Morning Kombat” on Thursday to preview the fight, believes Anderson broke the unwritten fighter code of attempting to put on blast what happened behind closed doors.
