Mixed martial arts legend Fedor Emelianenko put on a dominant performance over the weekend. Following the big knockout performance from “The Last Emperor,” Chael Sonnen has come forward with a critical message.
Emelianenko headlined Bellator 198 on Saturday, Apri 28, with a heavyweight war against former two-time UFC champion Frank Mir. Emelianenko made short work of his opponent, knocking out the former title holder within the first round.
Now “The Last Emperor” is set to face off against Chael Sonnen in the semi-finals of the Bellator MMA heavyweight tournament grand prix. Taking to Twitter, Sonnen decided to let his thoughts on the matter be known.
