  • Bellator 198 ceremonial weigh-ins: Fedor Emelianenko Frank Mir face off one more time

The Russian did endure a shaky start, though, before coming back to snatch the victory. But Emelianenko recovered took down Mir, who quickly brought the fight back to the feet.

After connecting with a left hook, "The Last Emperor" followed up with several strikes on the ground to force the stoppage. Sure, Emelianenko still looked vulnerable in the bout, as he has in many of his recent outings.

"The only thing I hate more than being in Chicago is being in the ring with you", Sonnen said, despite showing sportsmanship to the longtime MMA legend.

Fedor now advances to face Chael Sonnen in the next round of the GP tournament. He lost to Matt Mitrione by TKO last June in his Bellator debut, but he previously won five straight fights after three consecutive losses. "And the next time I am, I assure you it will not be for long". This is his first win on American soil since November 2009.




Meanwhile, Rafael Lovato Jr. locked in an armbar on Gerald Harris to get a victory a little over a minute into their bout.

Elsewhere on the card, Dillon Danis, training partner of Conor McGregor and coached by John Kavanagh, made a winning debut in MMA by submitting Kyle Walker with a superb toehold submission, and rising featherweight prospect Emmanuel Sanchez put himself in the title picture with a fine submission of Sam Sicilia. Gracie submitted Mexican welterweight Javier Torres in the second round of their bout with a triangle choke and moves his professional record to a ideal 8-0.

Fedor Emelianenko was questioned by agents who met him in his hotel room on Tuesday, manager Jerry Millen said before Emelianenko's Bellator MMA heavyweight fight against Frank Mir.
