"It's okay, we go through acclimatization. I prepare my pupil Andrei Koreshkov for an important battle at the Grand Prix and I prepare myself. Koreshkov is in the stage of weight loss, as there are no serious training, they are all behind, in Omsk. Now I have a more serious stage, I need to load, somewhere in two trainings a day. Then I will also go to the stage of weight adjustment. Tokov? I appreciate him, he is on the rise, he trains in a good team with Fedor Emelianenko. Plus they, I understand, train together. In general, I highly appreciate Anatoly," said Shlemenko.

The battle Shlemenko - Tokov will be on October 13 at the Bellator 208 tournament in Uniondale, New York.

Koreshkov on September 29 at the Bellator 206 is to hold a third fight with Douglas Lima.
