Last Emperor Rises: WATCH Emelianenko KO Mir After 'Great' Meeting With FBI

MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko

Fedor turned back the clock in classic Fedor fashion on Saturday by turning Mir's lights out in less than a minute. But Emelianenko recovered took down Mir, who quickly brought the fight back to the feet. Both landed glancing blows, before Fedor caught Mir with a short left hook on the end of a combination, sending Mir to the ground and into the turtle position.

Fedor now advances to face Chael Sonnen in the next round of the GP tournament.

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

"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. "And the next time I am, I assure you it will not be for long". The 41-year-old Emelianenko made his Bellator debut last June, falling via knockout in just 74 seconds to Matt Mitrione.

The rest of the main card was also filled with finishes - all coming by submission, and three coming in the first round.

Serving as the co-main event of the night, Emmanuel Sanchez will take on Sam Sicilia in a featherweight matchup.

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.

Emelianenko was in Chicago to take on Frank Mir at Bellator 198, and was approached by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at his hotel during fight week.
