The Bellator Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix rolled on this past weekend with a pair of fights at Bellator 257. In the main event, Vadim Nemkov retained the light heavyweight championship with a decision win over Phil Davis. The true standout performance of the night came from Corey Anderson, who put on a dominant performance to score a third-round TKO of Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov and advance in the tournament.

After another showcase of Anderson's dominant wrestling and ground and pound game, the former UFC star moved up to No. 8 in the pound-for-pound Bellator MMA Fighter Rankings. In addition, Anderson moved from No. 3 to No. 2 at light heavyweight. Davis dropped one spot to No. 3 after his loss to Nemkov.
