Ryan Bader already has proven himself one of the world’s top light heavyweights, and now he’s making a case a weight class up. Ryan Bader (26-5 MMA, 4-0 BMMA), Bellator’s light heavyweight champion, outworked natural heavyweight Matt Mitrione (13-6 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) for a unanimous decision in the Bellator 207 main event this past Friday night and moved into the heavyweight grand prix tournament final. There, in January, he’ll take on the legendary Fedor Emelianenko (38-5 MMA, 2-1 BMMA), who stopped Chael Sonnen (30-16-1 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) in the first round of the Bellator 208 main event Saturday to advance to the final on the other half of the bracket. A win for Bader over Emelianenko would make him a simultaneous two-division champion, just like Daniel Cormier is right now in the UFC.
