MMAFighting confirmed the initial report from the Los Angeles Times.

The event will be the culmination of the promotion’s Heavyweight Grand Prix, which kicked off in January when fans saw Chael Sonnen defeat Quinton “Rampage” Jackson to punch his ticket to the the tournament’s semifinals. Ryan Bader and Fedor Emelianenko later knocked out Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal and Frank Mir respectively. Matt Mitrione also outpointed Roy Nelson to close out the opening matchups.

Mitrione and Bader will now face off in the main event of Bellator 207 while Emelianenko takes on Sonnen at Bellator 208.
