Corey Anderson, fueled by determination and experience, is leaving no stone unturned in his quest for the Bellator light heavyweight title at the upcoming Champions Series: Belfast event.

Having faced former champion Vadim Nemkov twice in unsuccessful title bids, Anderson is now focused on seizing the vacant 205-pound strap against Karl Moore in what could be his final opportunity to claim the coveted belt.

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie Radio, Anderson emphasized his thorough preparation for this crucial fight, drawing from his decade-long experience in top-tier MMA promotions like UFC and Bellator.

The seasoned veteran is confident in his abilities, stating, 

“I’ve had enough fights where I’ve seen and done it all,” Anderson told. “I’ve been in the game for 10 years, in the big time. UFC and Bellator for 10 years. … No matter what Karl Moore throws, I’m 100 percent sure I’ve got the answer for it. I’m ready. I’m not going to be caught off guard.”

Anderson's showdown with Moore comes as Nemkov moves up to the heavyweight division, leaving the light heavyweight title up for grabs and setting the stage for potential future matchups, including a trilogy bout with the Russian rival.

While the future holds various possibilities for Anderson, including potential moves to different weight classes, his primary focus remains on securing victory against Moore and claiming the light heavyweight championship.

"After I get the belt, anything is possible,"  

If they give me the opportunity to go up to heavyweight and fight Nemkov, 100 percent percent. Let’s go. … My thing is I have to finish my business at 205 (pounds) first.” Anderson affirmed, highlighting his commitment before considering other opportunities.

As the anticipation builds for the Champions Series: Belfast main event, fans await an electrifying clash between Anderson and Moore, both determined to leave their mark in the Bellator light heavyweight division.
