MMA Legend Fedor Emelianenko had a rough night in the cage on Saturday as he was knocked out in just 35-seconds courtesy of Ryan Bader.
Fighters took to social media to share their thoughts on the fallen Emperor and new Bellator champion.

It’s sad to see a legend lose like this. Always a fan. Fedor is the greatest ever no matter what happened. #Bellator214— Patricky Freire (@PatrickyPitbull) January 27, 2019
