Ready to add a Randy Couture bobblehead to your collection at Bellator 186?

Looking for more MMA legend bobbleheads to round out your collection? You’ll get another chance next week.

Fans going to Bellator 186 in Pennsylvania can get a Randy Couture bobblehead. The first 5,000 fans in the door at the event get the limited-edition collectible, the promotion recently announced. In addition, Couture will be on hand to sign autographs and meet fans from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the concourse.

Bellator 186 will take place Nov. 3 at Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State’s campus in University Park, Pa. The main card will air on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.

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.”

This past Friday at Bellator 185 in Uncasville, Conn., the promotion gave away Royce Gracie bobbleheads.

Here’s the bobblehead fans can pick up in Pennsylvania next week:

Bellator 186 is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between new champion Ryan Bader and Linton Vassell. In addition, the inaugural women’s flyweight champ will be crowned when Ilima-Lei Macfarlane takes on Emily Ducote.
