The Bellator 288 results are in the books. This one was on fire in the prelims. Nearly every fight in the main card went the distance with the exception of Daniel James’ TKO win.
Nemkov vs Anderson finally answered the questions left in their last fight. Nemkov proved to be the better rounded fighter on this night. He was able to stop Andersons’ takedowns, and offer some good striking that was being really felt by Anderson. In the end the judges got this one right giving Nemkov the decision
A sweep for the Russian fighters tonight. That’s right Patricky Pitbull will not be taking the $1million home as he was dominated by Usman Nurmagomdeov. Usman looks like his time may come to be called up to the UFC if he continues to perform at this level. Being the brother Khabib Nurmagomedov he may be in need of tougher competition.
