Best male Bellator fighter: Usman Nurmagomedov

With the last name Nurmagomedov you are born to be good.

Bellator's lightweight champion Usman Nurmagomedov is the cousin of UFC great Khabib Nurmagomedov and has shown that the bloodlines in Dagestan are rich with talent.

He tore through the lightweight division eventually capturing gold from the man above, and has since defended the title as well. He'll also try his hand at being a Grand Prix winner when Bellator hosts the lightweight tournament in 2023.
