  • Fedor Emelianenko Bellator

"The Last Emperor" advanced to the semifinals of the 2018 Bellator MMA heavyweight grand prix, as he disposed of Frank Mir with first-round punches in the Bellator 198 main event on Saturday at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Despite his thoughts on Sonnen, it's no secret that heading into this highly anticipated bout on the back of a quick knockout is only going to help make this hugely marketable fight even bigger.

Emelianenko (37-5) connected with a left hand to Mir's face, bringing him to the ground, and then pounded Mir with a series of lefts until the fight was stopped.

Fedor will now progress to the semi-finals of the grand-prix, where he'll go up against Chael Sonnen.

After heading to the centre of the cage, Emelianenko backed away once the American threw a kick.


"I think the only thing I hate more than being right here in Chicago is being in here with you", Sonnen told Emelianenko. "The next time I do so, it won't be for long".

Fedor Emelianenko picked up one of the biggest wins of his storied mixed martial arts career at last night's Bellator 198 event in Chicago.

Rafael Lovato also joined Gracie in moving to 8-0 with an armbar submission victory after just over a minute into his bout with former UFC middleweight Gerald Harris. Gracie submitted Mexican welterweight Javier Torres in the second round of their bout with a triangle choke and moves his professional record to a flawless 8-0.

Elsewhere on the night, Dillon Danis made a winning debut in MMA by submitting Kyle Walker with a superb toehold.

In more first-round action of the heavyweight tournament, Fedor Emilianenko will take on Frank Mir in the final bout of the evening on Saturday.
