Emelianenko defeated Frank Mir during the first round of the tournament to advance to the semi-finals but lost his previous bout with Bader which could make things interesting if Bader and Emelianenko are paired in the final round. This is the fight that Bader admitted he wanted just last night.

Sonnen topped Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the opening rounds of the tournament and secured a decision win over the UFC vet. He’s riding on a two-fight win streak with back-to-back wins over Jackson and Wanderlei Silva.

Unfortunately, three fighters on the Bellator 208 undercard came in overweight for their bouts. Frank Buenafuente and James Gonzalez both missed weight and their bout against each other was scrapped. In addition, Jamal Pottinger came in a whopping 181.2 for his 175-pound catchweight fight with Robson Gracie Jr. making him a cringe-worthy 6.2 pounds over the limit. That bout, which would have been Gracie Jr.’s pro debut was also axed from the card.
