Fedor Emelianenko lost in 35 seconds to Ryan Bader at Bellator 214.
Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Ryan Bader made history Saturday night at Bellator 214.

With a thunderous 35-second knockout of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko, Bader not only took top honors in Bellator’s heavyweight grand prix and captured the promotion’s vacant heavyweight title, he also became the first-ever simultaneous two-division champion in Bellator history — and he did it with ease. One lead left hook was enough to down the Russian titan, who at 42 years old may be nearing the end of a fabled MMA career.

Check out reaction to Bader’s big win below, plus the best of the rest from a wild night at Bellator 214 that also saw Henry Corrales stun Aaron Pico via first-round knockout.
