Bellator Japan is in the books and the event was capped off with Fedor Emelianenko knocking out Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the first round.

Fedor was letting his strikes go early and appeared to have a significant speed advantage. Rampage was just shelling up the whole time and wasn’t able to return much offense of his own. Fedor was firing at will, and ended up landing a brutal right hand that dropped Rampage. The ref was right there to step in and stop the bout. Fedor finds himself back in the win column and picks up yet another finish.

The Russian icon has won three of his last four outings, but in his post-fight interview, he announced that this might be his last pro MMA fight. As for Rampage, well... this is the heaviest, and quite frankly the slowest, that we have ever seen him. He has now lost three of his last four fights.
