Tonight Bellator sends the big boys inside the cage to put on a fan favorite matchup to end the decade with a bang as the legendary “The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko takes on “Rampage” Jackson in Japan!
In the co main event we’ll see long time Multiple time Bellator champion Michael Chandler (19-5) take on short notice replacement for the former UFC LW Champion, Benson Henderson, Sidney Outlaw (14-3) who has not lost a fight in over 3 years with that last loss being a decision in favor of the now UFC fan favorite Gregor Gillespie. Outlaw has been making the rounds this week with many people saying this is his Rocky moment as he now must step in the cage with one of the best in the promotions history. Chandler is recently coming off a loss back in May against Patricio Pitbull at Bellator 221 where he suffered a 1st Round TKO right after gaining back his confidence putting together a string of wins.
Also on this Card you’ll see big names like Lorenz Larkin, MVP, Andy Nguyen, John Tuck, Daron Cruickshank and Jarred Brooks who we actually just recently spoke to a few months back when he was let go from the UFC along with the rest of the flyweight division.
Now it’s sad to say but the time has come for all the action to go down and to kiss an entire decade of edge of the seat historic moments to come to an end !
