Bellator 98’s Brett Cooper: “I’ve Actually Trained With Him… Even A Couple Weeks Ago”

MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg recently spoke with Bellator Middleweight Title challenger Brett Cooper as he gets set to take on Alexander Shlemenko for the organization’s 185lb belt at Bellator 98. The event takes place Saturday, September 7th from the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. Cooper was the first beneficiary of Bellator’s new ‘tournament replacement’ policy, as Doug Marshall broke his hand and wasn’t able to compete for the belt. Listen in as the two discuss this, as well as Cooper and Shlemenko’s history together.
