Bellator 269: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Johnson live results and highlights

With two fights left on his Bellator contract, we will see the second-to-last (maybe even the final) fight in the legendary career of Fedor Emelianenko in the main event of Bellator 269, as he takes on Tim Johnson in the main event in front of a hometown audience at the VTB Arena in Moscow, Russia.

Emelianenko once had a 28-fight unbeaten streak, with just one career loss coming in a highly controversial fashion prior to it. After losing three straight in Strikeforce, however, Emelianenko would retire in 2012 before returning to MMA just a few years later.

The former PRIDE heavyweight champion signed with Bellator and made his promotional debut at Bellator NYC in June 2017, losing via first-round knockout to Matt Mitrione. He’d rebound by knocking out Frank Mir and Chael Sonnen to advance to the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix Finals, where he’d lose in a single punch to Ryan Bader.

Emelianenko’s “retirement tour” began in December 2019 with a victory over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the Bellator 237 main event in Japan. He hadn’t fought since, in part, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After arriving in Bellator from the UFC, Johnson suffered knockout losses to Cheick Kongo and Vitaly Minakov before winning three straight against Tyrell Fortune, Matt Mitrione and Kongo. Johnson and Valentin Moldavsky fought for the interim Bellator heavyweight title at Bellator 261 in June, where Johnson lost by decision.
