- According to a report by MMAjunkie, the target date for the next round in the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix is this October. Fedor Emelianenko will face Chael Sonnen in one semifinal, with Ryan Bader meeting Matt Mitrione in the other.

Bellator president Scott Coker said the two fights will not take place on the same night, instead, they could air on back-to-back nights. Chicago is rumored for the Emelianenko-Sonnen bout.

If the semifinals don't happen until October, that means the finals are likely slated for early 2019.
