Bellator 198 Recap: Fedor Stops Mir in 48 Seconds

Bellator 198 Results – Fedor Emelianenko Punishes Mir, Moves on in Grand Prix Conor McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis earns first round submission win at Bellator 198

With Bellator 198 mere hours away, it does not appear as though the FBI's visit with Emelianenko - whatever the nature - will keep him from facing Mir in Saturday's main event at Allstate Arena in Rosemont.

The action started hot early, with Mir nearly immediately tagging and rocking Emelianenko.

Mir too was swiftly back upright and then the two stars threw caution to the wind by throwing heavy leather, with Mir again landing, but leaving his chin unprotected in the process, which led to Fedor catching him with a left hook that sent him slumping to his hands and knees.

But in each of those knockout losses, Emelianenko had his man hurt first if not just as badly, scoring a rare double knockdown against Mitrione and trading concussive blows with Henderson until one of them went out. That all changed when, for at least one night, Emelianenko turned back the clock.

Sonnen was straight to work in the cage afterwards, trying to get under the Russian's skin, in his face and telling the victor that when they meet in their contest they "will not be in the cage for long".

Fedor Emelianenko, arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, was questioned at his hotel room this past Tuesday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in regards to his connections to U.S. President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Trump's attorney Michael Cohen.

Emelianenko improves his MMA record to 37-5.

"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.

According to the Telegraph's Gareth A. Davies, the heavyweight legend was approached by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during his stay in Chicago ahead of a date with Frank Mir at Saturday's Bellator 198. Commenting on his meeting with the FBI, Emelianenko said that "everything was great".
