Just couple of days before Bellator 214, the two fighters in the main event – Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko (38-5-0) and Ryan “Darth” Bader (26-5-0) showcased their skills in the open workouts in Inglewood, California.
This Saturday night Emelianenko, 42, and Bader, 35, will face each other in the heavyweight world Grand Prix finals and the winner will go home with the heavyweight belt around his weist.
If Fedor manages to secure a victory, he’ll grab his second Bellator title. Bader is the current light heavyweight champion of the organisation.
In the semifinals the Russian defeated Chael Sonnen via TKO in the first round, while Bader outlasted Matt Mitrione via UD.
