BJJ standout AJ Agazarm makes his debut on the Bellator 214 prelims, which should get fans warmed up for the Bellator World Heavyweight Grand Prix finale!
Bellator 214 kicks off 2019 for Bellator MMA, while at the same time, bringing to a close the World Heavyweight Grand Prix. It’s another tentpole event for Scott Coker and co., one that could be the swan song for the legendary ‘Last Emperor’ Fedor Emelianenko. Once the most revered heavyweight in all of MMA, Fedor has managed something of a return to form over his past couple of fights. Now in his forties, the Russian finds himself presented with one last shot at gold. One more chance to earn a major title, and do so by topping a tournament.
What an achievement that would be. Of course, standing in his way is Ryan Bader, the light heavyweight champ who has moved up, looking to become MMA’s latest ‘champ champ.’ Bader is arguably in the best form of his career, and could pose real problems for the great Fedor.
Before that goes down, however, the early prelims stream right here on Cageside Press, as well as on the Bellator app. Keep an eye on standout BJJ specimen AJ Agazarm, as he makes his promotional and MMA debut on the preliminary card.
Check back come fight time for the Bellator 214 live stream, carrying all the preliminary card action! The fights kick off at 6:30PM EST, streaming below!
