BELLATOR TOP LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT VADIM NEMKOV PLANS TO COME BACK TO THE CAGE IN AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER
Vadim Nemkov is one of the strongest Russian light heavyweights and one of the best Bellator fighters at the moment where he has already defeated two former champions.
Despite an impressive three-win streak and victories over such opponents as Liam McGeary and Phil Davis, the promotion president Scott Coker, against all logic, made Davis the next contender, even thought their fight was less than a month ago.
Harcord staff contacted the top heavyweight to know more on what he has been doing during this forced downtime, and when he is going to come back:
“I’ve been healing injuries I got during fight with Davis. Then I’ve been preparing for the Russian combat sambo championship, with more trainings. Then I helped Valentin Moldavsky and Anatoly Tokov in the camp and trained myself in April. Now it’s time to help my brother Viktor training for the PFL that will take place on June 7.”
“I’d like to have an interim fight. Fighting is my job. I don’t like long downtime. It deprives me of money and fighting practice. Fighters grow fighting, not training! I will likely fight in August or September. The opponent is still unknown.”
Last time Vadim Nemkov fought at Bellator 209 last November. His opponent was Phil Davis. The fight turned out rather competitive and lasted all three rounds. The Russian fighter won by split decision.
