Bellator 290 Results, Bader Defends his Belt in a Send Off Fight
The Bellator 290 results are concluded and Fedor Emelianenko lays his gloves in the octagon. The event was held on February 4, 2023 from the Kia Forum in Las Angeles, CA.
The main event didn’t take long, about one minute, for Ryan Bader to catch Emelianenko with a couple of punches and had him on the canvas raining blows on ‘The Last Emperor’. Another a minute and a half of dominate ground and pound and Ryan Bader defeated Fedor Emelianenko, the first fighter to do it for the second time.
In the co-main event, Larkin defeated Tokov with some impressive takedowns. It was a great fight and the final slam, from Johnny Eblen, left no doubt in the judges minds as all three judges gave this one sided fight the proper outcome. Eblen by unanimous decision.
