Scott Coker is hopeful that Yoel Romero fights before the end of the year, but hasn't settled on a weight class, foreseeing a possible middleweight run and potential super-fight with Gegard Mousasi. Amosov is yet another product of Bellator ’ s sharp talent-scouting skills, but drafting talent is a little harder these days, with the number of large-scale MMA promotions in the market. Asked about what made Amosov stand out early on, Coker replied by saying that “the fight that really stood out to me is him and Ed Ruth, they had a great battle back-and-forth.

“So I saw a lot of combinations I haven’t seen before with Aaron, and I think his level of improvement has gone up drastically, so we’ll have a conversation with his management and his coach and see what they’re thinking, but he looked amazing tonight. The guy he was fighting was no joke, so he was impressive.”

With Bellator 260 being Pico’s first fight of the year, Coker is looking to ramp up his activity. The 24-year-old is targeting the division’s best, and Coker thinks it’s likely he will get a major step up in competition by the end of the year.

“What I saw tonight was spectacular and tremendous growth from where I saw him fight last time,” Coker said. “I think he’s more on the program of what we’re looking for now, and the frequency of which we’ll fight him will be more than we did before, and I think by the end of the year, he’ll be right back up there to where he could start fighting top guys again.”
