Tonight, at Bellator 113, Atilla Vegh will look to become the undisputed Bellator Light Heavyweight champion of the world by defeating the interim champion, Emanuel Newton.
In preparation of his title fight tonight, Vegh was the centerpiece in a Total Damage mini documentary detailing his training for this fight. The mini doc is quite interesting and gives fans an insider’s look as to what exactly goes into a training camp. You can watch the video in it’s entirety above.
Vegh and Newton will actually be rematching tonight from their bout at Bellator 72. In a hotly contested split decision, Vegh walked away with the victory and ultimately won the Light Heavyweight tournament. He then went on to defeat the Light Heavyweight champion, Christian M’Pumbu at Bellator 91 to become the champion.
After the loss to Vegh, Newton won four straight fights including two victories over King Mo to become the interim Light Heavyweight champion. In a recent interview with FanSided, Newton said that even if he could go back, he would not change the original decision against Vegh:
The first fight against Atilla was not my time. If I could go back and change it I wouldn’t. If I had beaten Vegh, I would have won the belt by defeating M’Pumbu, and then King Mo would have came in and beat the crap out of me. I was not a championship fighter then, but now I am. I am a night and day different fighter.
