Bellator’s heavyweight grand prix comes to an end tonight at Bellator 214 as Fedor Emelianenko and Ryan Bader meet in the final bout.
With the legendary Fedor Emelianenko (38-5, 1 NC) advancing through back-to-back TKO victories over Frank Mir and Chael Sonnen, ‘The Last Emperor’ could conceivably end his career with one more tournament win to his record.
Looking to prevent a happy end for the Russian, Ryan Bader (26-5) is looking for his own place in history as the current Bellator light heavyweight champion could become the promotions first double champion after tournament wins over Muhammed Lawal and Matt Mitrione.
Elsewhere at the California event, superstar prospect Aaron Pico (4-1) will hope to cement a featherweight title fight as he takes on Henry Corrales (16-3) in the co-main event while former WWE superstar Jake Hager (0-0) makes his MMA debut against JW Kiser (1-1) in the heavyweight division.
Also making his MMA debut at Bellator 214, AJ Agazarm (0-0) will transition over from the world of jiu-jitsu as he takes on fellow debutant Jesse Roberts (0-0).
