The current Bellator light heavyweight champion, Vadim Nemkov, spoke about the financial conditions under which he would be ready to sign a contract with the strongest league in the world when he worked out the current agreement with Bellator MMA.
“Everything is possible, everything is real – I’m 31 years old, and if I move to the heavyweights, then in the heavyweights and at 34-35 years old it will be possible to go and fight,” the Russian told reporters. “In light heavyweight I can fight for another three or four years, and in heavyweight for six years and with less damage to health. With what I know, with my abilities and data, you can ask for a good check in the UFC. So that for every fight a millionaire falls “
Last November, Vadim Nemkov won the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix, where he defended the championship belt three times and won one million dollars, and last week the Russian successfully defended the championship belt against Yoel Romero, defeating the Cuban by unanimous decision at Bellator 297 in Chicago.
