Matt Mitrione: After beating Ryan Bader, I want grand-prix finals rematch with Fedor in Russia

Posted On: May 16, 2018   |   Posted By: MMAjunkie

~~,AAAABvaL8JE~,ufBHq I6FnxR-PQW F3sm5QdUbP7D6E9&bctid=5482687005001 Matt Mitrione has a dream scenario for the finals of the Bellator heavyweight grand prix, and it involves a rematch against Fedor Emelianenko in hostile territory.
Mitrione is one of four men remaining in the eight-man tournament that will determine the next Bellator heavyweight champ. “Meathead” meets Ryan Bader in his semifinal matchup later this year, while Emelianenko takes on Chael Sonnen. If both win their respective bouts, Mitrione knows where - and when - he'd like the finals to take place.
“After I beat Bader, if Fedor is lucky enough to get by Chael, I want to fight Fedor in Moscow,” Mitrione said today in a Facebook Live chat. “I want to fight him. I want to put hands on him. On Christmas, like ‘Rocky.' Let's duplicate this .”
