Vadim Nemkov is the new Bellator light heavyweight champion after beating Ryan Bader on Friday in the Bellator 244 main event.

Nemkov (12-2 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) overwhelmed Bader (27-6 MMA, 5-1 BMMA) in the second round of the 205-pound title fight, landing a brutal number of strikes until the fight was mercifully stopped for the TKO in the headlining contest, which took place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
