We here at The Weigh-In wanted to provide an update on what is going on with the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament. This tournament promised to be an action packed tournament, in a winner advances format that would ultimately lead to the Heavyweight Title. In the first match of the tournament Chael Sonnen won over Rampage Jackson.
We now have another fighter who advanced. Matt Mitrione won a decision against “Big Country” Roy Nelson. For Mitrione, this win avenged an earlier loss he suffered to Nelson during his UFC days. Mitrione utilized his reach advantage and kept his distance, which ultimately led to his victory at Bellator 194.
You may recall, we here at The Weigh-In previously predicted if Mitrione got past Nelson, he would win the Grand Prix Tournament. Our opinion most likely does not shock the masses. Last we checked, every ragtag sports site has Mitrione favored. When it comes to the Bellator Heavyweight division, most believe no one can hang with Mitrione’s stuff. The man pisses excellence. It is rumored that mosquitoes will not bite Mitrione out of respect. We here at The Weigh-In do not fact check people, we just report what we hear, and it is why you love us.
Mitrione is now set to take on the winner of the King Mo versus Ryan Bader. The Weigh-In crew suspects King Mo will be victorious, but we hope it is a great fight. There is a lot of buzz out of the Bader camp that Ryan is out to win this whole thing and show the world his level of talent. King Mo is just a bad man with bad intentions. This match is scheduled to take place on May 12, 2018 at Bellator 199. This is a must watch for all MMA fans out there.
The next scheduled tournament fight is rapidly approaching. Frank Mir is set to take on Fedor Emelianenko. This fight has all the trappings of an instant classic. Both men may be full of more tainted meat than Canelo and the Ward Brothers freezer combined. Both Mir and Fedor are out to prove their best days are not behind them. Mir has proven he still has a lot left in the tank as he enters the twilight of his career. Fedor wants to add to his historic resume by winning another title. Tune in on April 28, 2018 to see Mir take on Fedor.
Keep tuning into The Weigh-In for Bellator Grand Prix results. We will continue to follow this tournament until a champion is crowned. In the meantime, we will resume ignoring pornographic materials because we are all sweet boys.
