Biggest Winners & Losers At Bellator 198

In the first round of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix, Fedor Emelianenko (36-5 MMA) took on Frank Mir (18-11 MMA) with the victor set to face Chael Sonnen in the semi-finals.

With the win, Fedor Emelianenko moves on in the Bellator Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament and will battle Chael Sonnen later this summer.

The 41-year-old Emelianenko advanced to face Chael Sonnen in the second round of the Grand Prix.

Russian fighter Fedor Emelianenko has confirmed he was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation when he landed in the USA last week. Many people were predicting a victory for Frank Mir, despite having been out of action for over two years but it was quick work for Fedor, who many consider this to have secured his place as the greatest heavyweight of all time.

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

Crotone are 17th with 31 points, one place outside the relegation zone, and are 14 ahead of Benevento who can not catch them. Mariusz Stepinski pulled a goal back for Chievo who are just two points above the drop zone.

Danis submit his opponent in just under two minutes at Bellator 198, but not before showing his lackluster stand-up skills, which is what Chandler is alluding to. He entered the heavyweight tournament and outpointed Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the opening round, despite weighing thirty-one pounds less. "The next time I do so, it won't be for long". He did his best to back up those bold statements after the fight with an interview that surely would've made the absent McGregor proud.

The famous Russian singer Oleg Gazmanov congratulated mixed martial arts fighter Fedor Emelianenko and even gave him his own poems.

Could Dillon Danis be the one to welcome Askren back to the States?

According to MMA Junkie, he said: "I can not say the fight went the way I planned it because I still missed some big hits. I'm too good. I said it, like this is another level".
