Former interim Bellator heavyweight champion Valentin Moldavsky said his bout with Linton Vassell will be a contender's fight.
I've been told that the meeting with Vassell is a contender's fight. The next one will be for the title. I'm number one in the heavyweight rankings, he's number two. The idea is that my next opponent should only be the champion.
