Can Fedor exit his profession on high with Bader upset at Bellator 290?
An all-time MMA legend will name it a profession Saturday – win or lose, we count on.
The stakes can be excessive for Russian heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko (40-6 MMA, 4-2 BMMA) when he challenges Ryan Bader (30-7 MMA, 8-2 BMMA) for the title within the Bellator 290 principal occasion. The 46-year-old Emelianenko already has mentioned this can be his last battle.
Emelianenko is a decently sized underdog to Bader, who’s a -320 favourite. The 2 have already got fought as soon as earlier than, and issues had been disastrous for “The Final Emperor.” Bader took him out in 35 seconds to win the heavyweight event and vacant title a bit greater than 4 years in the past.
Emelianenko has fought simply twice since then and has first-round knockouts of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Timothy Johnson, and a win over Bader would give him a storybook ending to an illustrious profession.
However does he have it in him? Our “Spinning Again Clique” panel of Brian “Goze” Garcia, Farah Hannoun and Danny Segura dive into the subject with host “Beautiful” George Garcia.
