Bellator Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) returns on August 21, 2020, with a powerhouse title card. It will feature Ryan Bader — also known as “Darth Bader” and “The Master” — the current, reigning Bellator MMA Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion. ESPN wrote that, on Friday, he will defend his light heavyweight title against Vadim Nemkov in the Bellator 244 main event at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. According to ESPN, Nemkov, a protégé of the legendary Fedor Emelianenko, has won six straight. For Bader it would be a potential two belt title.
Several months ago, just prior to recent global events (and additional safety modifications for our showroom), Mr. Bader visited Mohan’s Custom Tailors for an initial bespoke menswear consultation and fitting. Mohan’s is known for decades of custom men’s fashion design for major athletes, including UFC and Bellator powerhouses. Victor Mohan is a passionate devotee of the sport, and has had the honor of adding MMA megastars to the Mohan’s family of clients and to the Wall of Fame, along with world-renowned names in football, basketball, baseball, hockey, wrestling, weightlifting and more, as well as dignitaries, Hollywood and Broadway stars and business leaders.
Our session with Mr. Bader featured our “ultimate level of bespoke” process, including determining styles, cuts and fabrics for suits, shirts and other custom wardrobe items. Victor Mohan and fashion icon, Mike Mohan, reviewed fabric swatches, special lining options, monogramming and other features. He was then measured using our unique custom shell — a combination of high tech and long-held traditional fitting processes — for the perfect fit. Fitting men with athletic frames is one of Mohan’s specialities, and the muscular Mr. Bader, who moves between divisions in size and weight, was a particular, and exciting, fashion challenge for our team.
We will soon have photos from the final fitting. See our photos of this special fitting below. And don’t miss all the action of Bellator 244 on the Paramount Network on Friday night!
