Bellator’s Russian light heavyweight champion, Vadim Nemkov, is encouraged by the organization’s nomination for this year’s Grand Prix. According to the athlete, this time the composition of the participants turned out to be more powerful than ever, and a fight with any of the guys is a very dangerous event. However, the $ 1 million prize pool motivates you to work twice as hard.
“Six guys who previously fought within the walls of the UFC are signed to Bellator and are competing in the Grand Prix – it’s great. Each of them is strong in their own way, so the fans will have a great show and I’m sure we will be watched all over the world. My task is to become a winner, since a million dollars is not just a bonus, as it usually happens, everything is much more serious. This amount encourages me to work even better, because it is very difficult to get that much money in one season. “
“While I have no time to think about the future, I fully concentrated on the Grand Prix and do not dream of something else. Everything turned out exactly as we wanted, because I have a plan for the whole year, everything is clearly scheduled, plus the opponents are extremely dangerous, which means that each new challenge will be even more interesting. My team has not yet discussed the issue regarding the training camp, but in the coming days, everything will be decided. I think that we, as has always been, will go to Stary Oskol and prepare there. “
Recall that the Bellator Grand Prix starts on April 9, and the list of participants includes such names as Anthony Johnson, Yoel Romero, Gegard Mousasi and others.
