Bellator 269 saw the return of MMA legend, Fedor Emelianenko against #2 ranked heavyweight, Tim Johnson. It would take place in Moscow, Russia in what could be one of the last times we see ‘The Last Emperor’ put on the gloves.
Lasting less than two minutes, Fedor put together a beautiful three punch combo that would knock the American out, sending the Russian spectators into a frenzy. You can see how Twitter reacted below.

Fedor.— Seán Sheehan (@SeanSheehanBA) October 23, 2021
As noted by @SeanGrandePBP, no extra shots o the ground by Fedor. Classy, as always. That was cool. Keep going, young man!— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) October 23, 2021
I do think Fedor vs. JDS or Reem would do nice biz for Bellator. Hopefully he reconsiders his stance.
