Bellator 297 Vadim Nemkov vs Yoel Romero Analysis and Prediction
Vadim Nemkov is Bellator’s dominant light heavyweight champion and one of the strongest fighters in his class.
All eyes on the Italian champion:
Cyprus – Georgia. Kvicha Kvaratskhelia will not let you down!
Nemkov has three title defenses to his credit and won the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix. The last time he lost in 2016 was a split decision against Karl Albrektsson. In addition to MMA, Vadim managed to collect a whole collection of gold medals in sambo, winning the world and European championships several times.
The UFC announced the fight between Gan and Spivak.
For now, Romero may be Vadim’s last real Bellator call-up. He’s already killed nearly all of the local light heavyweight elite. Also, he won many with confidence, except that the first fight with Phil Davis turned out to be difficult for Nemkov, but in the second fight he won with confidence.
Yoel Romero retired from the UFC on a three-fight streak at the age of 43. At Bellator, he managed to restart his career, though not immediately. In his debut fight, the Soldier of God lost to Phil Davis via split decision, then finished off with Alex Polizzi and Melvin Manhoef.

At the moment, Romero is already 46 years old, but looking at his impressive physical shape, it doesn’t show. For the recent results of the Cuban, you can rejoice. He didn’t leave the UFC as well as he could, and now he’s making up for lost time.
Tsarukyan: Oliveira is a gift to me, I’m going to break it.
The title fight for Romero, who is 2-1 in the new organization, is a breakthrough and a tribute to his former merits. At Bellator, it’s common practice for guys in the UFC who are already on the decline to get another shot very quickly while their name is still in the spotlight. It doesn’t always end well for them, but the fight is done and the money has arrived.
Of Romero’s trump cards in this fight, only one powerful blow can be distinguished. 13 of 15 victories Yoel won by knockout, and this is a very serious indicator. However, Nemkov’s blows are also crushing.
Fortunately for Vadim, the Cuban in MMA has long since forgotten his wrestling foundation. If Romero had used him more often, he could have given Nemkov a lot of trouble, but Yoel has fought very few times in recent fights. And in the standing position, working carefully from a distance, the champion must slowly dismantle the challenger, increasing the pace as the fight progresses.
No problem for Kostya’s son:
Tim Tszyu – Carlos Ocampo. Beat the Mexican even if he is with one hand?
The age for fighters is not just numbers. Five rounds for the 46-year-old Romero is a very serious test. Vadim may give up some early rounds, but he’ll make up for it all by the end of the fight. Victory is unlikely to be early, but on points Nemkov should take the fight with confidence.
Tender: victory of Vadim Nemkov by decision of the judges by 2.40.
