Bellator 207: Mitrione vs. Bader - October 12 (OFFICIAL DISCUSSION)

The semifinals of the 2018 Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix begin Friday, Oct.12 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. and will feature the return of exciting knockout artist Matt Mitrione (13-5) as he steps inside the Bellator cage against light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader (25-5), who continues his quest to become a two-division world champion.

Bellator: Mitrione vs. Bader kicks off the semifinals of Bellator's 2018 Heavyweight World Grand Prix, which will crown a new Bellator World Heavyweight Champion. On the opposite side of the bracket, Fedor Emelianenko (37-5, 1 NC) is set to square off with Chael Sonnen (31-15-1) at a later date.

Matt Mitrione entered Bellator's Heavyweight World Grand Prix fresh off a first-round KO of Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator NYC this past June. Now, following a victory in his first-round matchup with Roy Nelson at Bellator 194, Mitrione advances to meet the always-dangerous Bader. Splitting his training between Indianapolis and Combat Club in South Florida, the Illinois native looks to be in the best shape of his career. Prior to his MMA career, Mitrione was a standout defensive end at Purdue University who subsequently earned his way into the NFL, playing six seasons as a member of the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings. He ultimately found his way into MMA where he became a high-level competitor, defeating the likes of the late Kimbo Slice, Derrick Lewis and Gabriel Gonzaga.

Ryan Bader will make his fourth appearance for Bellator and the first since his 15-second TKO finish of "King Mo" Lawal at Bellator 199, which served as Bader's first round pairing in the grand prix. Fighting out of Tempe, Ariz., Bader began his professional career by steamrolling the competition en route to a 12-fight unbeaten streak and winning one of the most competitive seasons of The Ultimate Fighter in 2008. "Darth" continued his path of dominance by collecting 15 victories over some of the 205-pound division's top talent, including wins over former world champions "Rampage" Jackson, Rashad Evans and Phil Davis twice. The former two-time NCAA Division I All-American wrestler from Arizona State University will look to become one step closer to being a current two-division Bellator champion on Oct. 12.

Bader is my favorite to win the tournament, and my favorite in this fight.

I originally thought Mitrione would win, but now I sort of think it's a pickem fight; but I lean slightly toward Bader.

I'd like to have Fedor as my favorite. I'd also like to see Fedor and Mitrione go through, and Fedor to beat Mitrione in the final.

Bader-Fedor would be competitive as well, and obviously I hope Fedor would win.

I've played Fedor-Sonnen in my head, and I don't see Sonen winning, but anythng is possible.

The fedor vs Matt fight it definitely was a who ever got up first type situation. Ryan bader is the young gun apart from fedor the most well rounded fighter in the tournament Matt has that one shot power if bader can avoid that he beats Matt else were

I'm still hoping for a Fedor vs. Mitrione final.  Still hoping to see Fedor avenge that loss and walk away with the Bellator title.  I can see why people are picking Bader in the Mitrione fight though.

Glad to see the next round but wished it was earlier since this means the finals will be in early 2019.

Apparently both fedor vs chael and Matt vs Ryan in the same month 

I personally see a fedor vs Matt final rematch let's be real only reason people are picking chael 
1 they want fedor to lose so they can say see told you he sucks for 1 millionth time
2 him beating a past their prime wanderlei and quinton. He did beat them he didn't face the pride version of Silva or rampage when he was known as the king of the slams.

Just days after it was reported that the former UFC fighter had signed with Bellator, Silva has been matched up with fellow UFC import Lorenz Larkin. Silva is stepping in for an injured Yaroslav Amosov to fight Larkin in what will be a Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix alternate bout at Bellator 207 on Oct. 12 at the Mohegun Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Really good alternate bout. This GP is so stacked. I will be pulling for Silva in this one.

Yeah, it does suck they lost him. I am glad they got a really good replacement though.

It's a really good co-main event.  The whole main card is solid for this one.

Big fight tomorrow night!  Followed by Fedor on Saturday.  I like the back-to-back events by Bellator.  They will be doing the same in Hawaii.  They will have Primus vs. Chandler 2 and Mir vs. Ayala in Hawaii. They will be having a fight for the troops event in Hawaii as well.

Can't believe back-to-back Bellator shows are about to start ending with a Fedor GP fight against Chael!
