Bellator has announced that the promotion has inked light-heavyweight champ, Vadim Nemkov, to a new contract.

The 30-year-old champion, who is coming off a decision win over Corey Anderson in November, has signed a multi-fight, contract extension. The new contract was announced by Bellator via press release.

“Vadim Nemkov was another athlete that we wanted to make sure we had on the Bellator roster for the foreseeable future. He’s a huge part of one of the divisions that we feel is the strongest in all of mixed martial arts,” Bellator President Scott Coker was quoted saying in the press release.

“Our light heavyweight tournament showcased that we have the top talent in the world at 205-pounds and we’re proud to be able to retain such a talented fighter to continue to lead that division. I am looking forward to seeing Vadim in exciting matchups in 2023 and beyond.”

No financial details regarding the contract were disclosed.

Nemkov (16-2) has gone 8-0, with 1 no-contest, since signing with Bellator in 2017.
