On Saturday, April 28, Bellator MMA returns to the Chicago area for its 198th event which takes place from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
In the night’s main event, two of the sport’s most decorated heavyweights finally lock horns as former Pride FC king Fedor Emelianenko meets former UFC titleholder Frank Mir in the opening round of the heavyweight grand prix. The 41-year-old Emelianenko made his Bellator debut last June, falling via knockout in just 74 seconds to Matt Mitrione. The loss snapped a five-fight winning streak for the Russian. Mir, meanwhile, has been sidelined for over two years due to a performance-enhancing drug suspension. The 38-year-old is just 2-6 over his last eight appearances, including a first-round knockout defeat to Mark Hunt in his last bout.
The night’s preliminary card kicks off at 7 p.m. ET with a live stream on Combat Press. The main card follows live at 9 p.m. ET on the Paramount Network.
The fighters hit the scales at 2 p.m. ET on Friday, April 27. Video appears above (courtesy of Bellator MMA), while the results appear below.
