Leading up to Saturday night's Bellator 180 card at MSG, former New York Giants defensive end Matt Mitrione admitted he still bled blue and essentially guaranteed he'd knock out Russian legend Fedor Emelianenko in front of his former teammates and legions of Giants fans. After all, he remains a draw, and Emelianenko has a multi-fight deal with the promotion, so it's not like a new set of contract negotiations need to take place. "I'll be good and honorable".

Who would you like to see Fedor Emelianenko fight in his next performance under the Bellator banner? It's a fight that Emelianenko showed some interest in as well.

"Certainly, I would love to have the rematch with Matt Mitrione", Emelianenko said.

But, he insisted that he would not be retiring and responded to Chael Sonnen's call-out.

MacGregor said it's likely that they are arguing over what was said in the courtroom - and that may go to Constand's credibility. The 79-year-old comedian told the judge that he decided not to take the stand after discussing it with his legal representation.

In his post-fight interview inside the ring, Mitrione looked into the camera and first addressed his children.

Followed closely by his upset of the late Kimbo Slice at UFC 113, Mitrione's victory over Emelianenko is the biggest of his career.

"The American Gangster" has never competed at heavyweight, but he has said on numerous occasions since signing with Bellator that he would be willing to make the leap up in order to face Fedor. Mitirone will likely be tapped for a fight with title shot or championship implications. The difference between Fedor and I is less than that.
