Bellator is in the Windy City today with two of its titles on the line. In the main event, Bellator 288 will host a rematch between Vadim Nemkov and Corey Anderson for Nemkov’s Bellator light heavyweight title.
Anderson challenged Nemkov for this title earlier this year, in the finale of the promotion’s light heavyweight grand prix. However, an accidental clash of heads forced that bout to become a no contest.
The co-main has Patricky Pitbull putting his Bellator lightweight title on the the line versus Team Khabib member Usman Nurmagomedov.
The prelims can be viewed live below, on YouTube. The stream starts at 6 p.m. ET.
