5 UFC vs Bellator fights fans would like to see
The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator MMA have for long been competing for the position of the best fight promotion in the world. While UFC has the obvious advantage and puts on fights which are better, Bellator is nipping at their heels, picking up former fighters and putting on extremely good shows as well.
Both promotions have huge rosters of their own, full of tried and tested fighters who can all compete at the very top level of Mixed Martial Arts. The two promotions have often been fantasy booked by the fans if fighters from Bellator took on fighters from UFC in a UFC vs. Bellator competition.
It is interesting to think about what could happen if such a situation arose between the two promotions, where they competed against each other.
In this article, we will talk about the best fights that could happen if these two promotions happened to go head to head. Without further ado, here are 5 Bellator vs. UFC fights the fans want to see.
#5 Michael Chandler vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
The kings of the current UFC Lightweight Divisions of Bellator MMA and UFC, Michael Chandler and Khabib Nurmagomedov have ruled the roost on their own shows by their own methods.
Khabib Nurmagomedov does not need his accomplishments listed as he currently is still undefeated in his career after 27 fights. Nurmagomedov is a 1-time Lightweight Champion in the UFC and has defended his title a total of 1 time after winning it. His accomplishment lies in his total domination of any and all challenges he has faced, including 'The Notorious' Conor McGregor whom he faced last at UFC 229.
Michael Chandler, on the other hand, has proven his ability over time. He is a 3-time Champion in Bellator, which is a record by itself. On top of that, he has had the most title bouts of any fighter in the company at 10 fights. A record-holder in different aspects of Bellator, Chandler does not need anyone to speak for him, as he recently won back his Lightweight Title for the 3rd time in his career.
