What kind of tournament?
The fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione will be the main event of the tournament of the American promotional organization Bellator, which is based in Newport Beach. It was established in 2008 and for eight years has entered the leading positions in the MMA industry. At the moment, Bellator is second only to the UFC. Earlier Bellator was famous for hosting tournaments on the Olympic system, but, with the arrival of the Scott Cocker into the organization, they were canceled.
At this point in Bellator there’s no champion in heavyweight. Previously, it was Vitaly Minakov, but he was stripped of his title. The company's management is going to play the title in the near future. It’s likely that the winner of the confrontation Emelianenko - Mitryon next time will fight for the belt. Who will be the second finalist, is unknown. Good chances are for the Frenchman Cheick Kongo, Russian Sergei Kharitonov and American Roy Nelson.
