Bellator 208: “Fedor vs. Sonnen” comes to NYCB Live (home of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum) in Uniondale, N.Y., on Sat., Oct. 13, 2018. As one might expect from the name, the main event is yet another semifinal match in the Heavyweight Grand Prix, airing the same weekend that Bellator 207: “Mitrione vs. Bader” takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“The American Gangster” Chael Sonnen (31-15-1) got to this position by handily out-wrestling Quinton “Rampage” Jackson earlier this year at Bellator 192, earning his second straight win in the process. To make it three in a row he’ll have to knock off Pride FC legend Fedor Emelianenko (37-5, 1 NC), who crushed Frank Mir in April of this year.

At this early date, no other fights have been announced for Bellator 208. Tickets are available through a special Bellator Nation pre-sale, though, this Thursday (July 26, 2018) and go on sale to the general public the following day (Fri., July 27, 2018) at 10 a.m. ET through Ticketmaster and Bellator.com. Bellator 207 tickets will then go on sale at NYCB’s box office the next day.
