The event was to be headlined by both of the high-profile semifinal matchups for the Bellator Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix Tournament and took place at the Footprint Center, home of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury. Current Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Vadim Nemkov (14-2) was to defend his title against No. 4 ranked Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (23-6), while current Bellator Heavyweight Champion Ryan Bader (28-6) faced No. 2-ranked light heavyweight Corey Anderson (15-5) in the co-main event.
On September 18, it was announced that Anthony Johnson was forced to pull out of the bout due to an illness that will keep him out until 2022. Nemkov instead faced the alternate Julius Anglickas. Anglickas's opponent Karl Albrektsson was rescheduled with Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov.
