Corey Anderson Wants Vadim Nemkov And Phil Davis Next


Corey Anderson made a successful Bellator debut at Bellator 251, but the fighter is now setting his sights on the future, which includes bouts with Vadim Nemkov and Phil Davis.

A victorious Anderson just wants to fight people vying for the light heavyweight belt and nobody else.

“(I want) Phil Davis and (Vadim) Nemkov – the two people fighting for the belt,” Anderson said at a post-fight news conference (via Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “After they (fight), I want the winner. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t get it. (Ryan) Bader is going to heavyweight to defend his belt. If he was staying at 205, I would fight him. But he’s gone. Lyoto (Machida) just lost, so why would I fight a loser? I want somebody that won.”

Nemkov is expected to defend the light heavyweight gold against Davis next, but nothing has been made official at this time. Anderson doesn’t care who wins the potential title fight, as he just wants a shot at the championship.

“We already saw Nemkov beat him once, (and) I think he just got better,” Anderson said. “He’s going to do the same thing. So technically, I want Nemkov. But if Phil wins, I want Phil. I want the belt. I want that belt on my wall. I’ve been dreaming about it. I want a belt over my TV when I wake up every morning. I want to see it (and say), ‘I did that.'”
