    So FNG folded and he wanted to fight in the UFC, but Bellator prevented it from happening.

    I thought he was he was going back to Bellator?

    Might aswell stay in Europe and fight in KSW, or go to Asia and compete in ONE.

    Wow, when did FNG fold? I've noticed they have massively fewer events in 2018, but they still have an upcoming event on October 19th. When was this announced?

    And I think Minakov probably fights in Bellator, especially since there are now some intriguing match-ups in the wake of the heavyweight GP.

    He’s back with Bellator. He should be fighting in the coming months. That’s a big coup for Bellator’s hw division. I’d have him face like Rampage or something. Or maybe even Roy Nelson if he wins tonight.

    Yep! Ali abdel aziz is his new manager and they re up with Bellator. Ali was basically blackballed by Bellator when he was wsof matchmaker but to make peace with them and to start doing business, minakov was his ace to work out a deal.

    Is that the story? I knew Ali would always trash Bjorn but I didn’t know any of that continued with Coker.

    Russian commentators during the Bellator event said that they talked to Bellator officials and plan for Minakov is to have him fight at HW Gran-Prix Finals event and if he wins, he will be fighting for the title.
