The head of Bellator announced a new Grand Prix for the promotion in 2023


Scott Cocker shared his plans

Scott Cocker, 59, has announced the organization and hosting of the 2023 Bellator Lightweight Grand Prix. The promoter admitted that the league had been going for not one, but several years to create such a tournament, gathering top fighters for this idea.

“If you look at our roster, I think this is the best roster Bellator has ever had. It took us about four or five years to get there. We have a lot of young guys, about whom I have a very high opinion, and a lot of good veterans.

I think it will be an amazing tournament. Brent Primus will be participating. We haven’t decided who will be in the top eight yet, but if AJ McKee decides that he likes to fight at 155, he will definitely get an invitation to move up a notch. And if he wants to return to 145, then everything is in order. But next year it will be an amazing tournament, ”said Cocker.
