Fedor Emelianenko remained undefeated in his home country of Russia at Bellator 269 Saturday night.
“The Last Emperor,” 45, notched his 40th win Saturday in front of the excited home crowd by knocking out American challenger Timothy Johnson in 100 seconds at Bellator 269 at the VTB Arena in Moscow.
Johnson (15-8-0), 36, came in as the underdog despite being nearly 9 years younger than Emelianenko. After an exchange, Fedor scored a straight right, left, hook, right hook combination that sent Johnson crashing into the canvas and prompting an immediate stoppage from the referee.
