Nemkov reacted to the victory of Tokov in Bellator

The current Bellator light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov commented on the successful performance of his teammate Vladimir Tokov, who won an early victory over the previously undefeated Canadian Lance Gibson at the Bellator 293 tournament.

“Congratulations to Vladimir,” Nemkov wrote on the social network. “He put in a very good performance against an unbeaten fighter. His opponent is a good striker, a versatile fighter, but Vova showed high speed and accuracy, hit with one blow and was able to finish him off. Fast and beautiful”

“A lot depends on each fight – whether they will extend the contract with you, whether they will raise the amount in the contract, so every fight is important. I think that in this fight he did not show all his capabilities, he did not open up. What he does in training and in fights is still different. When he transfers work in training to fights, we will see his true potential. ”

Recall that the lightweight fight between Vladimir Tokov and Lance Gibson, which became part of the preliminary card of the event, ended at 1:02 of the first round with the victory of the Russian by knockout.

Prior to this, Tokov had five fights in Bellator, scoring three wins and suffering two losses, with all the fights going the full distance, and the losses were separate.
