Bellator Double-Header Results: Fedor Is Old, Sonnen Is Old, Everyone Is Getting Old

This weekend brought us not one, but two (!) Bellator events, with Bellator 207 on Friday and Bellator 208 on Saturday. On Friday night, it was all about TUF winner Ryan Bader grinding out a win over TUF washout Matt Mitrione, while Saturday saw legendary Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko move his old bones about the cage while taking on a creaky Chael Sonnen.

I guess you could say the overall theme of the weekend was, “Damn, all these got old.”

I mean, it was inevitable of course. Fedor was the best in the world back when the world was a struggling UFC and a captivating PRIDE FC. That was a long time ago. And Sonnen… Sonnen was relevant when he was giving Anderson Silva the fight of his life.

So yeah, it should’ve been expected, the ugliness that was Sonnen going for any takedown he could while Fedor wailed away. At one point, Sonnen had the Russian’s back, and inexplicably leaped off it and over the top, thereby giving Fedor a clear path to victory. But whatever. Old people do crazy things sometimes.

Fedor Emelianenko Chael Sonnen

Elsewhere on the Bellator 208 card, Chieck Kongo managed to somehow not knee anyone in the nuts and not get kneed in the nuts himself. He also won, knocking out Timothy Johnson in a little over a minute!

Former UFC champ Benson Henderson grappled the hell out of Saad Awad, earning a decision. Meanwhile, former champ Alexander Shlemenko… also old. Also sad.

At Bellator 207, Bader did exactly what he needed to do to avoid getting punched to death by Mitrione: he wrestle-humped him into oblivion.  I guess this means we’ll see Bader take on Fedor in the heavyweight grand prix finals, and Bader will furiously try to impregnate him.

Sergei Kharitonov did his thing against Roy Nelson – his thing being wail away until Nelson covered up and then fell down.

Hey, guess who’s too old and worn to be fighting? Roy Nelson.

Francis Ngannou on Brutal Knockout of Alistair Overeem: ‘I Will Do That to Everyone’

All it took was one punch for Francis Ngannou to officially announce himself as the heavyweight No. 1 contender at UFC 218.

Ronda Rousey: Amanda Nunes predicting first-round KO ‘because everyone knows she gasses out in the second’

Amanda Nunes has predicted that she will knock Ronda Rousey out in the first round. Rousey thinks she has an idea why Nunes would say that.

“Yeah, well she kind of has to say that, because everyone knows she gasses out in the second,” Rousey said Wednesday on Conan. “So she has to tell herself that, ‘It’s gonna happen first round.’ What else is she gonna tell herself?”

The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion was on Conan O’Brien’s show to promote her UFC 207 bout against Nunes, the current titleholder, on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas. But it doesn’t seem like she’ll be doing much more than that. Rousey intimated that her days doing ESPN “carwashes” and other media like that are over.

“I don’t really have to,” Rousey said. “I’ve done a lot of learning in this last year and I’ve learned that the views I get or the money I make really doesn’t mean anything for me or my happiness. Now that I know the women’s division is secure, I don’t have to do that anymore. I choose not to.

“It’s not really something that I get a kick off of. Like, ‘Ooh, I went to spend 12 hours at ESPN and talk sh*t all day.’ That’s not really what I want to do. I want to play World of Warcraft.”

Rousey, 29, has not made many public appearances this year, following her November 2015 loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. The defeat to Holm was a shocking one. Before that, Rousey was one of the most dominant fighters in UFC history and a transcendent star, the biggest mainstream face MMA has ever had.

Rousey (12-1) was undefeated before fighting Holm and truly unchallenged. “Rowdy” finished her previous four fights in 66 seconds or less. She ran roughshod over the division for more than two years.

With movies, television and commercials all beckoning — Rousey was just named a key spokesperson for Pantene — UFC 207 might be one of the last times we see Rousey in the Octagon.

“I don’t think after this fight,” Rousey said of retirement, “but definitely soon.”
