Bellator 186: “Bader vs. Vassell” takes place at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pa., on Nov. 3, 2017, featuring a Spike TV-televised main event — and the first Light Heavyweight title defense for Ryan “Darth” Bader — as he puts the 205-pound gold up against “The Swarm” Linton Vassell and his three-fight win streak.
Now stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Bellator is giving away a free limited-edition bobblehead to the first 5,000 paid ticket holders through the door that Friday night. This time the mixed martial arts (MMA) legend being profiled in tiny bobbling form is none other than Randy “The Natural” Couture. The multiple-time, two-weight class champion had his last Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fight in 2011, but even his Hollywood success hasn’t stopped him from occasionally pondering a fighting return.
In the meantime, Couture has plenty of other irons in the fire including Xtreme Couture and his son Ryan’s MMA career in Bellator. That won’t stop him from taking the time to meet and greet fans in the concourse of Bryce Jordan Center from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. ET on Friday, but space is limited so you’re advised to arrive early.
