Bellator is staying in the bobblehead business this month with another MMA legend.
In September, Bellator gave away 5,000 Fedor Emelianenko bobbleheads to fans at Bellator 183 at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. The promotional move was a hit with fans in California who got a mini version of the Russian heavyweight legend wearing his “glorious sweater of absolute victory.”
Later this month at Bellator 185, which takes place Oct. 20 at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn., the promotion will give away Royce Gracie bobbleheads.
The promotion today announced the first 5,000 fans into Bellator 185 will get a Gracie bobblehead. Plus, Gracie, a UFC Hall of Famer, will be on hand from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to sign autographs and greet fans in the Mohegan Sun concourse outside the arena.
