Bellator 288 From Chicago To Feature Two Title Fights
The upcoming Bellator event in Chicago this November will feature a pair of championship matches live from the Windy City on Showtime.
Bellator is headed to the Windy City, and bringing two title fights with them.
Bellator 288 on November 18 will take place from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago. The main card airs live on Showtime.
In the main event, Vadim Nemkov defends his light heavyweight title against Corey Anderson in a rematch. The two met in the grand prix finals this past April.
That fight between Nemkov and Anderson was declared a no-contest after they clashed heads. The title and $1 million will be on the line between the unbeaten Bellator fighters.
The co-main event will see Usman Nurmagomedov challenge Patricky Freire for the lightweight title.
Freire will be making his first title defense after winning the belt with a knockout of Peter Queally last year. Nurmagomedov, the cousin of Khabib Nurmagomedov, is a perfect 15-0 in his career.
