Scott Coker open to Bellator heavyweight tournament but wants to crown champion first
(mmajunkie.com)
With a new influx of talent, and an unclaimed championship belt, Bellator’s heavyweight division is ripe for a tournament. Bellator President Scott Coker, no stranger to the format, likes the idea of pairing the division’s baddest big guys against each other. But he said a new champion will be crowned before that happens. “I think we will have some more fights, see how these guys fare, and then we can talk about something like that,” Coker today told MMAjunkie. Coker said a matchup between Roy Nelson (23-14 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) and Matt Mitrione (12-5 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) “makes a lot of sense” as a fight for the title, though he also mentioned the surging Cheick Kongo (27-10-2 MMA, 9-2 BMMA) as a potential contender.
