Bellator 214: “Fedor vs. Bader” comes to The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Jan. 26, 2019, featuring the conclusion of the Heavyweight Grand Prix in the the main event, which pits Fedor Emelianenko (38-5, 1 NC) against Ryan Bader (26-5). Given that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is running Anaheim the same night, there will be no shortage of high-profile fights as each promotion tries to lure attendees and/or live viewers from one California venue to another.
One of those Bellator fights will be Aaron Pico (4-1) vs. Henry Corrales (16-3) — a potential No. 1 contender title eliminator match in the making.

Both men are promising up-and-comers riding four-fight win streaks in the 145-pound division. Corrales looked impressive finishing the larger Andy Main at “Fedor vs. Sonnen,” while Pico destroyed former contender Leandro Higo in yet another first round finish at Bellator 206 two months ago.
