The Bellator heavyweight grand prix final is set for Jan. 26, when either Ryan Bader of Fedor Emelianenko will be crowned the promotion’s new heavyweight champion. For our latest Daily Debate for MMAjunkie Radio listeners and MMAjunkie Readers, we’re looking past that. We wanted to know who you thought would be first in line to challenge the Bader-Emelianenko for the title, and we gave you three options. They are: Sergei Kharitonov (28-6 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) – The 38-year-old Russian hasn’t lost since November 2016, a streak that includes five wins and one no-contest for an accidental eye poke, and he just knocked out Roy Nelson at Bellator 207 this past weekend, which is no easy task. Kharitonov became just the third person to finish Nelson, but by doing so inside the first round, he is the quickest. Hard to deny him.
