Bellator 257: Vadim Nemkov vs. Phil Davis official weigh-in results
In a little more than 24 hours, Bellator 257 will take place and host two first-round matchups in the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix, topped by Vadim Nemkov defending the Bellator light heavyweight championship against Phil Davis.
Before they can enter the Bellator cage, however, the two men, along with the rest of the card, must first get through the Bellator 257 official weigh-ins.
The Bellator 257 main event will be a rematch from Bellator 209 in November 2018, a fight that saw Nemkov defeat Davis by a split decision.
This will mark Nemkov’s first time defending the championship since finishing Ryan Bader at Bellator 244 in August to claim the title. Davis, meanwhile, has won three fights since the original loss to Nemkov, most recently edging Lyoto Machida in a split decision at Bellator 245.
The Bellator 257 co-main event will also be a first-round Grand Prix matchup, as Corey Anderson — coming off a successful Bellator debut with a second-round finish of Melvin Manhoef — meets former ACA light heavyweight champion Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov, who’ll be making his Bellator debut.
