A weekend jam-packed with fights closes out with Bellator 208, featuring a World Heavyweight Grand Prix Semi-Final between Fedor Emelianenko and Chael Sonnen.

The winner of the main event bout between Fedor Emelianenko and Chael Sonnen will go on to fight the winner of tonight’s Bellator 207 headliner between Matt Mitrione and Ryan Bader. The heavyweight tournament final will take place on January 29.
