Re-live this epic KO, as we take a look back at the culmination of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix and one of Ryan Bader’s most memorable moments in the Bellator cage. Bader became Bellator’s first simultaneous two-division champion when he knocked out Fedor Emelianenko just seconds into the fight.
Many people were surprised when Bader fought out his last UFC contract and then inked a deal with Bellator, but it has proved to be a brilliant move. Bader became the Bellator light heavyweight champion in his first fight under the promotion’s banner. A year and a half later, he took out Fedor to hold the light heavyweight and heavyweight titles simultaneously.
Bader returns to the cage at Bellator 243 on May 9, when he will put the light heavyweight championship on the line against challenger Vadim Nemkov.
