Round 1: Mike Beltran is the referee for this historic main event. Bader comes out and takes the center of the cage and is moving a lot. Fedor is standing his ground and waiting to pick a shot. Suddenly Bader steps in with a long lead left hook that floors Fedor. Bader jumps on him with an absolute assault of a right shovel punch on the grounded Fedor and turns the lights out! Ryan Bader is a Bellator’s first two-division champion!
