NEW YORK – This is the Bellator NYC live blog for Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione, a heavyweight bout at Saturday night's Bellator event at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Emelianenko, who has won five straight fights, will square off against Mitrione, who has won three of his past five fights, in the co-main event.

Check out the Bellator NYC live blog below.

Round 1: Dan Miragliotta is the referee. Big pop for Fedor. Mitrione dances around, and Fedor just waits. Both men looking to land big. Mitrione first to throw, a left that misses. Leg kick from Fedor. USA chant goes off. Mitrione with a shoving left hand, and then they both swing at the same time and both land and go down! A double knockdown. Now Mitrione recovers first and lands a couple of shots, right hands, and now a big one and Fedor is out! It’s over. What a crazy fight. Mitrione just left Fedor lying supine on the canvas trying to come back to consciousness.
