Bellator 210: “Manhoef vs. Njokuani” comes to WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla., on Nov. 30, 2018, airing live and free on Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET. So far only one fight has been announced for this event, and judging by the title, fight fans should already know who it is, unless of course you guessed Anthony Njokuani; however, if he ends up in attendance on fight night it would only be to corner his brother in the main event.

Chidi Njokuani (18-5, 1 NC) has been out of action for almost one year following a hard-fought decision win over highlight-reel striker Hisaki Kato (8-3). If “Bang Bang” thought that action was rough, just wait until he sees what the next war Oklahoma has in store.

That’s because Melvin Manhoef (30-14-1, 1 NC) lives up to his “No Mercy” nickname with an astounding 27 kickboxing and 28 mixed martial arts (MMA) knockout wins. Unfortunately for the combat sports legend, he will come into the bout against Njokuani trying to steer out of a two-fight skid courtesy of a pair of losses to Rafael Carvalho. And at 42 years of age, the clock is ticking. Indeed, only one man can emerge as a future Middleweight title contender.
