“I’m very happy. I trained so hard for this fight. I knew I could do it. I was calling this guy out for a reason,” Burns told Daniel Cormier in his post-fight interview. “My name now has got to be the No. 1 contender. I love the champ, my training partner Kamaru Usman, but c’mon – give me the shot. I’ve got a lot of love for you, but I’m next. I want to fight for the title. If they want to make the f…

Ryan Bader : Expects More Of The Tournament From Fedor Emelianenko


Ryan Bader admits he would have "being starstruck", if he met the Fedor Emelianenko earlier in his MMA career but at this stage of his career has met so many legendary fighters to be feeling that way, when he get in the ring on Jan. 26th.

Bellator 214 Fight Card : Fedor Emelianenko vs Ryan Bader 

Bader (26-5 MMA, 4-0 BMMA) is attempting to become the promotion’s first simultaneous two-division champion and sure knows what danger , he will be facing against Fedor Emelianenko (38-5 MMA, 2-1 BMMA)

“If this was 10 fights, 20 fights earlier in my career, (being starstruck) would be the case, I would be sitting there like, ‘Holy (expletive), I’m standing across from Fedor and he’s about to try to take my head off,’” Bader told reporters during open workouts at Viacom headquarters in Hollywood.
“But now, I’ve been in there with those top guys. Stood across from big greats in MMA. And I don’t feel that anymore, I just feel like he’s the Fedor of today. The Fedor of Jan. 26 is getting into the cage and that’s it. He can’t bring any of his past accomplishments, neither can I. It’s kind of (let) the better man win on that day.”

Ryan Bader knocked out Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in the grand prix opening round. He then earned a dominant  unanimous decision over Matt Mitrione to land in the final of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix but admitted, he expected better competition from his past opponents and will no doubt expect it ftom Fedor.

“I would like to see more from this tournament, from him,” Bader said. “I wanted to see a second round with Chael. I wanted to see more in the first round with Frank. And that kind of adds to that mystique. I hear all kinds of stuff about Fedor, ‘Oh, he’s out of his prime, he’s this and that,’ but man, look at his last fights.
“He’s a super dangerous fighter, especially in that first round, he’s coming out like a buzzsaw. And I have to make him do that, too. I’ve got to make him go out there and use up all that energy and get that out. Man, this is one of the biggest fights of my career and he’s one of the most dangerous opponents I’ve had.”
