Bellator Middleweight Division has world class fighters such as Gegard Mousasi, Lyoto Machida, Anatoly Tokov. Middleweight division has Costello Van Steenis and Fabian Edwards two future Bellator Middleweight Champions!
Van Steenis and Edwards were rumored to fight each other in Bellator Europe 8. Co-Main Event Slot. However thanks to the coronavirus that fight will be postponed until further notice.
Hope Scott Coker and the matchmakers return this fight when Bellator comes back.
Basically a Bellator Middleweight Contender fight.
Edwards (9-0-0) is one of the most talked about European prospects in the sport and has been in sensational form under the Bellator banner, having claimed five wins in as many outings under the banner since joining the pro rans. Edwards’ last win came against U.K. rival Mike Shipman who he defeated via split decision in London in November – a win that he felt cemented his spot as the best middleweight in the U.K. and Ireland.
Van Steenis (12-2-0) is the understudy of Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi. Although a recent trip to the U.S. saw him snap a win streak of six when he met John Salter, Van Steenis made an argument for being the most impressive young middleweight on Bellator’s roster when he ran through Shipman at Bellator 223 in London last June.https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/2/28/21157378/fabian-edwards-vs-costello-van-steenis-booked-for-bellator-london-co-main-event
Fabian Edwards vs Costello Van Steenis I feel like will be one of those trilogy Middleweight fights for the next several years. Beating each other for the Bellator Middleweight Title and their trilogy begins this summer/fall of 2020.
