Corey “Overtime” Anderson named a top 10 Pound-for-Pound fighter in Bellator


Corey “Overtime” Anderson is a 2007 Hononegah High School grad who recently was named the #8 Pound-for-Pound fighter in Bellator MMA, as voted on by the media.

Anderson has an upcoming Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix Final Fight against Vadim Nemkov on Friday, November 18 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago. It’s a rematch from Bellator 277 in April 2022. That contest saw an accidental head butt that ended a fight between the two.

Anderson and his family have been pointing toward this moment to see him become a world champion since he joined Bellator. Corey Anderson is 16-5 overall and standing at 6' 3" tall, he has a three-inch advantage against the current Light Heavy Champion Vadim Nemkov.

Besides being a world champion-caliber MMA fighter, Corey Anderson is also on the wrestling coaching staff at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN.

With half his wins on decisions, Anderson talks about a "ground and pound" style that takes the fight out of his opponent. After Bellator 277, he spoke of taking the will or fight away from Vadim Nemkov in the next round but the head butt stopped him from doing this.

Going into Bellator 288, Corey “Overtime” Anderson is full of confidence and the game plan to take the world title away from Vadim Nemkov.
