One of the biggest fights on Bellator MMA’s calendar is the Bellator 208 main event, which will see heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko meet three-time UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen in the semifinal round of the promotion’s exciting Heavyweight Grand Prix.
This week, the promotion released a promotional poster for this Bellator 208 card, and it’s really something.
In this poster, Fedor Emelianenko is superimposed in front of the Russian flag. Not a whole lot to see there. “The American Gangster” Chael Sonnen, however, is decked out like Apollo Creed, squaring up valiantly in front of the American flag.
See it below.
