Miocic stopped Daniel
Cormier in the main event of UFC
241, many took to social media to declare the Cleveland native
to be the greatest heavyweight of all-time. Yet, Bellator
MMA President Scott Coker thinks otherwise, as he believes
“@RyanBader is the best heavyweight fighter on the planet,” Coker
wrote in his tweet.
Bader, of course, is the current Bellator light heavyweight and
heavyweight champion after winning the promotion’s heavyweight
grand prix earlier this year. There, during the tournament, he
Lawal in just 15 seconds in the first round. He then followed
that up with a dominating unanimous decision win over Matt Mitriobe
and then finished Fedor
Emelianenko in 35 seconds to win the heavyweight title.
In his first title defense, “Darth” will take on Cheick Kongo
in the main event of Bellator
226 on Sept. 7.
