The semi-finals of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix come round on back-to-back nights this weekend as Chael Sonnen fights Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione takes on Ryan Bader.
It is going to be a wild couple of nights inside the Bellator cage as Mitrione vs Bader headlines on Friday and Chael vs Fedor is the main event on Saturday.
The likes of Roy Nelson, Lorenz Larkin, Benson Henderson and Alexander Shlemenko are all also in action over the duel events.
It is a huge weekend for fight fans, but there is not great news for us over here in the UK…
When are Bellator 207 and 208 and where are they being held?
Bellator 207 (Mitrione vs Bader) is being held on Friday, 12 October at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Bellator 208 (Sonnen vs Fedor) is on Saturday, 13 October at the Nassau Coliseum in New York.
Are they being shown on TV in the UK and are there live streams?
It appears not, with no announcement yet made on the day of Bellator 207.
The most reliable source for such matters is Gareth Davies, who last updated his followers that he is, waiting to hear definitive answer on the issue.
Waiting to hear definitive answer on what is happening with @BellatorMMA 207 and 208 events for UK this weekend… will post as soon as I get an answer

Unfortunately, if there is no TV deal worked out at the last minute then it is highly unlikely that we will be able to stream the events in the UK either.
Channel 5 showed Bellator 206, but this appears to be a one off deal, and one that did not go very well with the main event being cut off in favour of Peppa Pig.
