Bellator 268: Nemkov named the strengths of Englikas
“What are the strengths of Anglicas? I think his strong point is fighting and physical strength. And the fact that he can functionally breathe three rounds. This is what I saw.

And the victory in such a tournament will be really significant in my career. After all, serious fighters are gathered here. Very famous. This is a high-level Grand Prix, ”Nemkov said at a press conference.

Julius Anglicas replaces Anthony Johnson
Initially Julius Englikas should have fought in the preliminary card against the Swede Karla Albrektsson… Recall that the Scandinavian defeated Nemkov in April 2016. The Lithuanian was originally a substitute for the Grand Prix semifinals. Place Englikas paired with Karl was taken by a fighter from Turkmenistan Dovletjan Yagshimuradov…
Dovletjan took part in the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix, but lost in the quarterfinals to Corey Anderson. In the fourth minute of the second round, the American defeated the ex-champion of the ACA and ACB by technical knockout.
The style turned out to be not so clumsy. But Yagshimuradov is not ready for eminent rivals yet

Nemkov’s rival was arrested for fraud. What awaits the Russian fighter?
Vadim Nemkov was supposed to fight Anthony Johnson
Vadim’s original rival, former UFC light heavyweight title contender Anthony Johnson, withdrew from Bellator 268 due to illness. At least that’s what the fighter himself said.
