Bellator MMA will start in 2022. The year brought exciting action to the cage in the first four months, and the next two are already jam-packed with massive fights.

April began with a huge disappointment when Patricio Ptibull regained the featherweight throne by beating AJ McKee in their rematch. Pitbull used his patience over five rounds to take down the previously undefeated McKee. Now, he and his brother are at the top of both the featherweight and lightweight divisions.

Unfortunately, the Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix was unable to determine a winner. Vadim Nemkov vs. Corey Anderson was declared a no contest after an accidental clash of heads resulted in a massive gash to Nemkov’s head late in the 3rd round. If the round had been completed, a technical decision would have been made. Instead, the title remains with Nemkov, with the $1 million prize still up for grabs. The two are set to rematch on November 18 in Chicago with the title once again on the line.
