Get excited: the Bellator Lightweight World Grand Prix begins at Bellator 292 on Friday.
A pair of quarterfinal fights serve as the main and co-main event, with reigning Bellator lightweight champion Usman Nurmagomedov defending his title for the first time against Benson Henderson and Tofiq Musayev facing Alexandr Shabliy.
Also featured is a rematch between heavyweights Valentin Moldavsky and Linton Vassell. At Bellator 218 nearly two years ago, the Fedor Emelianenko-trained fighter defeated Vassell by unanimous decision.
