Scott Coker promises new Bellator heavyweight champ by first quarter 2017

Post by MR.WILLIE on Fri Sep 16, 2016 1:58 pm

“It’s going to be a fun run for the belt,” Coker said Thursday.

Tonight, two assets in the big-man division – onetime title challenger Cheick Kongo (24-10-2 MMA, 6-2 BMMA) and prospect Tony Johnson (10-2 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) – meet at Bellator 161 to stake their claim as future title contenders. The event takes place at H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, Texas, and its main card airs live on Spike with prelims on MMAjunkie.

But there are more names who are in the hunt to be the next champion, no thanks to several recent talent signings and veterans willing to bulk up for heavyweight fights.

“We have Matt Mitrione in the mix now, and we have a couple of other guys that are considering fighting at heavyweight,” Coker said. “When we look at our roster, ‘King Mo’ (Muhammed Lawal), winning that Rizin tournament late year, proved he could fight in the heavyweight division and do well. Bobby Lashley’s still in the mix.”

“I think you’ll see (a Bellator heavyweight champ) in the first quarter of 2017,” he said.

That would be cool.  Interesting that Mo may go back to HW where he fought and was successful in Sengoku and at Cruiserweight for Rizin.  Makes sense for him and Bellator to have him move back there since he lost to Page, Newton, and now Davis at 205 so he is not getting a title shot any time soon there and fought most the division. There are interesting fights with Chael and Tito at 205 still but Bellator needs him more at HW.

Yeah, that SF GP was excellent.  Cormier defeating Barnett was a bit of a shock for me at that time.  He jumped way up the ranks after that fight.  

I agree, that would be a very solid GP that Bellator could put together.

Honestly think should have Kongo fight Rampage for the belt (would be a great tentpole).

That's a solid fight....they are friends so I don't know how much thrilled they will be to face each other and we don't know if rampage is still an active fighter ? I think Kongo beats him since rampage last fight he got a judges gift in his fight with ishii


But I'll watch I agree my friend

Rampage is shit at hw and hasn't beaten anyone to be in consideration for a title at all.

At least bellator has enough hws to even make a 16 man gp lol

Wsof has 3 top fighters rest are mid and really low level guys lmao 


But of course it makes sense to give a title shot to a guy who is bloating to hw and has looked horrible beating no one to earn a shot instead of utilizing a combo of big names and rising talent right?

Wsof hw division thin as fuck...

But they signed some guys Bellator should have added like Shawn Jordan and even Jared Rosholt, even so he is boring as hell.

Bellator has more money they should have a better division for sure but at this point they haven't separated themselves

Roshalt is genuinely not fun to watch i wouldn't want him.

Jordan i would like to have seen in bellator too but he himself ssid he had a better shot at a title faster in wsof so thats where he went.

I'd definitely like to see some fresh faces but bellator has some good hws ...

Vets like kharitonov,gormley,kongo,mittrione,tony johnson,and colossus.

Good prospects in augusto sakai,tyrelle fortune,justin wren,and ewerton texiera,bobby brents shamrock fc hw champ.

Rest are mid to lowtier unproven talent but guys like rashad coulture are promising too.

There is definitely room to grow but they have the 2nd best hw division,then m-1 if not tied.

Lmfao rizin......????? You mean the guys who couldn't find fedor a real opponent in months worth of time???

Or the rizin that a lhw king mo bloated up and won their inaugural hw gp???

Or the rizin using kazuyuki fujita against young killers?

Bobby lashley would rape Baruto in front of the japanese crowd lmao.


Rizins hw division is hardly better the One fc and wsof......and Only cuz they had fedor and possibly shane carwin.
