Scott Coker Planning Two Title Fights Down The Line


Bellator MMA President Scott Coker is coming off of an interesting sophomore effort on pay-per-view with Bellator 180.

When it comes to the future of the promotion and its champions, the Bellator MMA President has two future title bouts in mind.

“We’ll do (the rematch) as long as Chandler can do it,” Coker said to MMA Junkie. “If he has to get surgery and he’s out for a year or six months or eight months, we’ll have to wait, I guess. Bader won, and we’ll see what happens. ‘King Mo’ comes to my mind right away (as his first challenger). For Phil, maybe he can fight Linton Vassell. We’ll find some fights for him.”

Bret Primus defeated Michael Chandler to win the lightweight title and Bader defeated Phil Davis at the same event to win the light heavyweight title.

Chael Sonnen defeated Wanderlei Silva in the main event of Bellator 180 and Coker also has some future plans for him.

“Chael’s got four of five great fights ahead of him,” Coker said. “We’ll find an opponent that will be another big blockbuster event like this. I think he could main event for us again.”

Coker is going to be seen next at Bellator 181, which takes place on Friday, July 14.
