Johnny Eblin promised to "destroy" Anatoly Tokov at Bellator 290
The fight will take place in early February.
In the co-main event of the Bellator 290 tournament, which will be held in the United States on the night of February 4-5, American middleweight champion Johnny Eblin and Russian challenger Anatoly Tokov will meet.
Most of the experts, with some stretch, call Eblin the favorite, although the champion himself does not even doubt his superiority.
“He was unbeaten in Bellator. No one has beaten him for several years. This guy puts on some good performances. I think he is the best one to fight for the belt, because all the other contenders lost. But this does not change the fact that I will destroy it without suffering any damage, ”the champion promised.
At the moment, Eblin is an undefeated fighter, having won all of his twelve fights. Tokov has thirty-one victories and two failures in mixed martial arts.
