Bellator 198: Fedor vs. Mir Results

With a flurry that Bellator can use repeatedly to promote Fedor's next bout with Chael Sonnen.

Fedor Emelianenko still has some story left to tell. Sure, Emelianenko still looked vulnerable in the bout, as he has in many of his recent outings.

This win bounces Emelianenko back from his Bellator debut - a first-round TKO loss to Matt Mitrione back in June.

"Dillon Danis said he was the "highest paid fighter in Bellator MMA, ' but I think he meant to say 'most un-athletic fighter in Bellator" and that was against a man with a losing record", Chandler wrote. But Emelianenko recovered took down Mir, who quickly brought the fight back to the feet. "The next time I do so, it won't be for long". This is his first win on American soil since November 2009.

Emelianenko's US manager Jerry Millen confirmed the Federal Bureau of Investigation had sought out his fighter before his appearance at Bellator 198.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu aficionados were treated to an array of submission victories on the main card, including Conor McGregor's close friend and training partner Dillion Danis.

Elsewhere, the second-biggest talking point of the night stemmed from the pro-debut of Dillon Danis, who after talking a big talk, managed to submit his opponent Kyle Walker with a toe-hold, again, in the very first round.

Emmanuel Sanchez made quick work out of Sam Sicilia in the co-main event, securing an arm-triangle choke from the standing position to finish the bout. 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.
