Bellator 185: “Mousasi vs. Shlemenko” goes down at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Oct. 20, 2017, as former mixed martial arts (MMA) champions Gegard Mousasi (42-6-2) and Alexander “Storm” Shlemenko (56-9, 1 NC) collide in Spike TV’s main event of the evening.
The success of a previous Fedor Emelianenko bobblehead giveaway at Bellator 183 last month has led Bellator MMA to do it all over again for this card. And this time it’s Royce Gracie who will be given to the first 5,000 fans to walk through the door. Much like “The Last Emperor,” Gracie has long-standing ties with Bellator President Scott Coker dating back to his days running Strikeforce; however, Gracie also owns a Bellator MMA win thanks to a third (and presumably final) bout with Ken Shamrock.
In addition, those who want to congratulate Gracie on his victory (and not just pick up a collectible) can meet the MMA legend at the concourse of Mohegan Sun on Friday, Oct. 20, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. ET. Space is limited, though, so fans are encouraged to arrive early to reserve their place in line.
