Bellator 268: Vadim Nemkov vs Julius Anglicans, Fight Analysis & Predictions

On October 16, Bellator 268 is going to take place at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The headlining of the event will be a light heavyweight title fight between Vadim Nemkov and Julius Anglicans.

Vadim Nemkov is a newly reigned light heavyweight king of the promotion. He dethroned Phil Davis at Bellator 257 and will defend his title for the first time. He is undefeated in Bellator with 6 victories in a row and is currently on 8 winning streaks in his professional MMA career. He has an imposing resume. He defeated former champion Phil Davis, twice in 2018 via split decision, and secondly in April of the following year, via unanimous decision. Before earning the title shot, he earned victories against Rafael Carvalho and Ryan Bader.Before signing in the Bellator, he fought in Rizin, and once, he fought in Fight Night Global, too. He suffered loss twice. One of the losses is against current UFC title contender Jiri Prochazka (in 2015), and another against Karl Albrektsson via split decision.

Bet on Vadim Nemkov vs Julius Anglicans with 1xBet

His rival will be Julius Anglickas, with 10 victories and 1 loss. Just like his rival, he is undefeated in Bellator, too. He made his Bellator debut in 2019 and has earned 3 victories since then. Before Bellator, he had a 100% finishing rate with 3KO and 4 submissions victories, but he earned all three victories via unanimous decision in the Bellator. Before signing in Bellator, he earned one of the Dana White Contender Series victories via 3rd round submission against Karl Reed. He also fought twice in LFA and earned victories on both of them. His only loss was against Cameron Olson in his second professional bout in 2016.

Nemkov is opening this bout as a huge favorite, but I don’t think he should be considered. Nemkov looks better, but they have the same experience, and Julius is full of surprises. The winning of Julius has the odd of around 5, which is massive odd, and I might use this odd in “Fun Bet,” but in a severe bet, I would not for sure.

Nemkov’s winning has the odd around 1.2, and it is too low for Nemkov, but in 5 rounder battle, I would go for TKO/KO/Submission victory for Nemkov, which’s odd is something between 1.7-2.0. (Depends on the website).
