New, comments

Check out video of staredowns after the Bellator 269 press conference in Moscow, Russia, including Fedor Emelianenko and Timothy Johnson facing off before their heavyweight headliner on Saturday, courtesy of Bellator MMA.

Former PRIDE champion Emelianenko has said his fight with Johnson could be his last in a two-decade career that’s included several promotions and a 10-year unbeaten streak. Johnson hopes to add a huge name to his resume after losing to Emelianenko protege Valentin Moldavsky in his previous Bellator outing.

Bellator 269 takes place Saturday at VTB Arena in Moscow. The event’s main card airs live on Showtime after prelims on MMA Fighting. In the co-headliner, former Bellator heavyweight champ Vitaly Minakov fights up-and-comer Said Sowma.
