I rolled with Akop while Schlemenko coached him etc and then interviewed all the Bellator Russian fighters back at a house. Look for those interviews week leading up to their fights.

Not all that impressed with this tournament honestly.LW is the best tournament this season, FW, LHW and WW imo are kind of lacking.Sandro should win this, its got to be his last chance in Bellator.
