Bellator 172 is this Saturday, and the card is one of their better ones, with names like Cheick Kongo, Patricky Friere, Josh Thomson and Josh Koscheck making this card more recognizable than usual.
But the piece de resistance is in the main event, with Matt Mitrione taking on… Fedor Emelianenko.
Yes, the Russian is old, and has looked old in his last few fights. But like Anderson Silva, the dude has a shelf life that extends beyond his actual abilities and exists within his legend. Plus, there’s his sweater.
