Fedor Emelianenko came up big at Bellator 269. The ‘GOAT’ knocked Timothy Johnson out in the very first round of the main event at the VTB Arena in his home country Russia. This was Fedor’s first fight since Bellator 237, when he knocked Quinton Jackson out.
With that win, Fedor Emelianenko also remained unbeaten in his home country. A big right hand from the Russian got the job done. Johnson was knocked out cold. At the post fight interview Fedor said: “Thank you everyone for your support tonight, I’m especially happy for the Russian fighters… I’m extremely grateful we were able to make you happy.”
