“Countdown To Bellator 172: The G.O.A.T” Premieres Tonight On Spike

“Countdown To Bellator 172 Fedor vs Mitrione

At 12:00 Midnight ET/PT

 Faceoff Fedor vs Mitrione

In the sport of mixed martial arts, Fedor Emelianenko is considered by many the greatest of all time or The G.O.A.T.

 Spike

The Russian mixed martial arts icon cemented his legendary status over the last two decades as the most dominant heavyweight in the history of the sport.  In a remarkable 8-year span, fighting mostly with PRIDE in Japan, Fedor went undefeated, winning 26 fights (1 no contest), beating many of the most skilled combatants in the world. His combination of kickboxing and judo skills is unparalleled in his weight class.  Fedor returns to fight on American soil after a 4-year absence against hard-hitting heavyweight Matt Mitrione at Bellator 172 on Saturday, February 18 from the SAP Center in San Jose, airing at 9:00 pm on Spike.

Before Fedor steps in the cage,  Bellator and Spike TV give viewers a rare, inside look at “The Last Emperor”  in an original 30-minute documentary, “Countdown to Bellator 172: The G.O.A.T,” premiering on Tuesday, February 14 at 12:00 Midnight ET/PT. From rarely seen PRIDE fight footage to a revealing sit-down interview to video of Fedor and Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, “The G.O.A.T” provides a unique glimpse into MMA’s most reclusive superstar. The MMA personalities featured include Randy Couture, Royce Gracie, King Mo, Stitch Duran, Big John McCarthy, and more.

WHAT’S ON THE MINDS OF THE STARS OF UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: BERMUDEZ vs. THE KOREAN ZOMBIE?

 

Houston – As fight night approaches, here is what the stars of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: BERMUDEZ vs. THE KOREAN ZOMBIE had to say leading up to their Saturday night matchups:

Dennis Bermudez: “I’m just trying to enjoy it (the experience) and not worry about what’s actually at stake here. It’s a super big opportunity and super big scene here; I’m trying to have fun with the whole experience. All the hard work is done; I’m going to go out there and do what I do and I’ll be fine. After I win here, realistically I would like to fight Max Holloway. I have a win over him, he has the interim belt. That’s the reason I signed up to be in the UFC, it’s to be a world champion.”

“The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung: “It’s really good to be back and it’s really nice to see all these people come out to support us. I don’t know exactly what is going to happen once we get in the Octagon, but I think we can always expect an exciting fight. There are no easy fights in the UFC, everyone is tough. So, if I’m going to come back I might as well fight the toughest guy I can so I can make my road back to championship contention as quick as possible.”

Alexa Grasso: “I know she is very well-rounded, she’s very dangerous for me, but I’ve been training very hard for this fight. This is a great opportunity, not just for the weekend because there are so many people here, but it’s great for both of us.”

 

Felice Herrig: “I was really excited for this fight, this matchup. I think I’m at a good place mentally and physically. I think styles make fights and I’m at a point in my career where I want to put on fun and exciting fights for the fans and I want to put on fights that people are excited for and pumped up about. I’m really pumped up; I think it will be Fight of the Night and I think it’ll be fun to watch.”

Abel Trujillo: “This fight is like every fight, you’re only as good as your last fight. This fight I want to put on a great performance and make sure people remember my name. I’m prepared and I’m ready to take on whoever. After this victory, I definitely want another top-10 opponent.”

James Vick: “This is my state! I was born and raised here in Texas. I love fighting in Texas. If I could pick, I’d always fight here in Texas, every fight. This is a big fight for me.”

JOSH KOSCHECK vs MAURICIO ALONSO Added to Bellator 172: Fedor vs. Mitrione

JOSH KOSCHECK RETURNS TO THE CAGE AGAINST MAURICIO ALONSO AT SAP CENTER IN SAN JOSE ON FEB. 18

 

MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT FEATURING ANATOLY TOKOV AGAINST FRANCISCO FRANCE ADDED TO THE PRELIMINARY CARD

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (January 31, 2017) – A welterweight bout pitting Josh Koscheck (17-10) against Mauricio Alonso (12-7, 1 NC) has been added to the Spike-televised main card of Bellator 172: Fedor vs. Mitrione at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. on February 18, 2017.

 

In addition, recently signed Russian star Anatoly Tokov (24-2) is set to square off against Francisco France (13-4-1) in a middleweight clash that will be featured on the Bellator.com-streamed undercard, while a previously announced main card bout between Adam Piccolotti and Brent Primus has been cancelled after Piccolotti has been forced to withdraw due to an undisclosed injury.

 

Bellator 172: Fedor vs. Mitrione will be broadcast live and free on SPIKE at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, while preliminary action will stream on Bellator.com and the Bellator Mobile App. Tickets for the event are on sale now at the SAP Center Box Office as well as Ticketmaster.com.

Bellator MMA Fedor vs Mitrione Feb 18

Koscheck will be making his highly anticipated Bellator MMA debut after signing with the Viacom-owned promotion in 2015. Prior to the signing, “Kos” competed under the UFC banner for nearly a decade, compiling 15 wins and nine finishes. Now, the 39-year-old Dethrone Base Camp product hopes to soar to the top of Bellator MMA’s stacked welterweight class and add to his impressive resume of 17 career victories. Never one to mince words, Koscheck has made it clear that he hopes to once again meet Paul Daley inside the cage, but first, the Fresno, Calif. native must get through Alonso on Feb. 18 when he returns to action on Spike.

 

Hailing from Parana, Brazil, Alonso will be making his second appearance under the direction of Bellator MMA and first in the welterweight division since 2014. The 36-year-old enters the bout riding a recent string of success, earning victories in each of his last two contests and seven of his last 10 dating back to 2010. Of his 12 career wins, Alonso has finished his opponent five times, including four knockouts. Alonso will look to build off of an undefeated 2016 campaign when he competes on Feb 18.

 

Under the tutelage of the legendary Fedor Emilianenko, Tokov has strung together an impressive resume of his own, where from 2012 to 2016, the prospect was riding a streak of 17 consecutive wins. The 26-year-old Russian is known to end fights early and often, finishing his opponent in 19 of his 24 career wins, including nine first round finishes. If Tokov is going to continue to blossom on the Bellator roster, he will have to defeat his opponent on Feb. 18 first.

 

Hailing from Gilbert, Arizona, 18-fight veteran France enters the bout having won six of his last eight contests, including one draw and five finishes. The 33-year-old submission specialist will be making his third appearance under the Bellator MMA banner and first in nearly a year at Bellator 172. “Kiko” brings with him one of the most dynamic ground games in the division, finishing 12 of his 13 victims via submission; displaying a wide array of devastating techniques, including rear-naked and arm-triangle chokes, arm bars, and kimuras.

WHAT’S ON THE MINDS OF THE STARS OF UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: SHEVCHENKO vs. PENA?

Las Vegas – As fight night approaches, here is what the stars of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: SHEVCHENKO vs. PENA had to say leading up to their Saturday night matchups:

Valentina Shevchenko: “It’s a very important fight, not only because it’s very close to a title shot, but because every fight is very important to me. For each fight, I prepare like it’s my last fight and I know exactly what victory can bring me. I am very motivated for this. I feel very great and I push myself to the limit every time.”

 

Julianna Pena: “My mind is my biggest weapon in the Octagon. My determination is my biggest weapon in the Octagon. I can beat anyone at 135-pounds that steps in the Octagon with me.  I think, 110 percent, the winner of this fight is getting a title shot. Numbers one and two are going at it and the winner definitely deserves a crack at the belt.”

 

Donald Cerrone: “I am so excited to fight at home, we’re going to blow the roof off this place on Saturday night. Home court, home turf, I don’t know what that means but I feel like I have some kind of advantage. I’m looking to finish; I’m looking for a second-round finish. Hopefully a win puts me in line for the number one contender.”

 

Jorge Masvidal: “This week has been great, I’m ready to fight. I’m doing what I love to do. I think Cowboy is easy money. I see me beating his a**, I don’t know if I finish or if I just beat his a** for three rounds, but I’m beating him. I prefer to leave the judges out of it, I prefer to fight.”

 

Andrei Arlovski: “Fighting is easy, but it’s a little bit cold in Denver. Francis is big, cocky and strong. He said he was going to knock me out in the first round, but we’ll see how it happens.”

 

Francis Ngannou: “I’m very excited to fight Andrei Arlovski. I will probably finish him. My first choice is by knockout, second maybe by submission – but knockout first. I know that the fight is going to be strong and hard, but I expect to finish him before the end of the fight.”
