Valentin Moldavsky has nothing to say to Ryan Bader, but looking forward to their fight

UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Bellator has a brand-new heavyweight king – or maybe more properly, a co-king.

Valentin Moldavsky (11-1 Mixed Martial Arts, 6-0 BMMA) outworked a video game and gritty Tim Johnson (15-7 Mixed Martial Arts, 3-3 BMMA) for a unanimous choice win in the Bellator 261 centerpiece to take the interim heavyweight title. The interim belt is the very first in Bellator’s long history.

Now Moldavsky is established for an ultimate title marriage battle with champ Ryan Bader, whose involvement in Bellator’s continuous light heavyweight grand prix demanded the interim belt. After his win, Moldavsky stated he doesn’t have much to state to Bader – however is anticipating their battle down the roadway.

Have a look at the complete interview with Moldavsky in the video above.

Bellator 261 happened Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The primary card aired on Showtime following prelims on Mixed Martial Arts Addict.
