UFC Vegas 51: Belal Muhammad Says He’s the Worst Matchup for Khamzat Chimaev (Video)
Corey Anderson names Vadim Nemkov his toughest opponent before the Bellator 277 clash.
Bellator light heavyweight contender and former UFC fighter Corey Anderson knows he can expect the unexpected when it comes to light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov.
Anderson will face Nemkov in the Bellator World Grand Prix light heavyweight finals at Bellator 277.
Nemkov has looked almost unbeatable in his last few bouts, but Anderson is considered one of his toughest opponents in the Bellator cage.
During his Bellator 277 prefight press conference, Anderson answered whether or not he considers Nemkov his toughest test in the cage.
“I feel like he’s my trickiest opponent, but I can’t tell if he’s the most dangerous until I get in there,” Anderson said. “He definitely does a lot of things that other guys don’t do, but he does a lot of things that all my combined opponents do together. So he takes something from everyone I’ve fought. He’s always on the move. Most heavy guys, definitely light heavyweight, are looking for that big KO shot… he’s always on the move and you have to know what he’s trying to do.”
Corey Anderson wants to achieve his championship dream
Anderson has won three straight games since losing to Jan Blachowicz in his UFC finals. Nemkov has nine straight wins, including victories over Ryan Bader and Phil Davis.
Anderson is looking to shock the world and win a light heavyweight title in a major promotion for the first time in his career. While confident of defeating Nemkov, he is a realist when it comes to assessing his opponent’s impressive repertoire.
