Scott Coker is accepting reservations for Anthony Johnson vs. Yoel Romero – MMA Sports

Bellator President Scott Coker admits that he may not want to risk losing one of the most enthusiastic and anticipated battles he can book in 2021.

Bellator recently signed an explosive power Anthony Johnson (22-6) and Yoel Romero (13-5) has a total of 27 knockouts on his resume and has multiple contracts.Both men have arrived at the roster of cokers ready to compete in the light heavyweight division, and there was already the prospect of a pair facing each other in the Bellator cage. Attracted a lot of interest online..

If either fighter matches immediately, there is a risk of killing the momentum of either fighter, but Corker understands that the window of opportunity to achieve that battle may not be that great. I will.

“We’ve thrown away a lot of hypotheses, but let’s face it. That’s the fight fans want to see,” Coker told MMA Junkie. “And my philosophy was that if there was a fight and you could fight, you would always fight, because there is no guarantee that the fight will take place in 6 months or a year. The fight seems to be very hot and I’m not saying it will happen, but one day I’ll definitely have a serious discussion. “

With two strong additions to Verator’s already stacked light heavyweight roster, the fight could take place as part of the Grand Prix, and Coker acknowledges that the promotion is considering it.

“It’s going to be a pretty tournament, and that’s something under consideration,” Corker said. “Initially, we were thinking about 135 (split) with Magomed Magomedov, but we still have (Juan) Archuleta. We invited Kyoji Horiguchi or Kai Asakura, who won the (fight) in Japan, to this tournament. I was going to do it.

“We talked about the women’s division-we still have some great talent there-and now we’re talking about the 205 (department), although it’s definitely in the conversation , We haven’t decided yet, but that’s something we’ll understand within the next 20 days, locked, loaded, and ready. “
