Aleksander Emelianenko is a bit of a strange dude. He’s the younger brother of Fedor Emelianenko and doesn’t seem to possess the same stoic attitude and outlook towards life. Instead, he’s got a few Russian prison tattoos, had a public bout with hepatitis C and seems to always be in trouble in one way or another. It’s kind of a shame as he is a competent fighter and a solid draw in Russia. Hell, Legend Fight Show has him booked against Mirko Cro Cop on November 8th in Russia.
While I’m not gonna imply that he won’t be there, I am going to say that he has gotten himself into trouble again. Apparently he got into a brawl at a cafe in Russia, leaving the guy that he was fighting with in the hospital. It is Russia, so chances are he might not get in trouble for it, but c’mon, Aleks. Be more like big brother Fedor and just hang out, maybe play the guitar a little, wear a nice sweater. Do something like Fedor.
Then again, it might suck being in the shadow of the greatest of all time. Aleksander Emelianenko is scheduled to fight Mirko Cro Cop on November 8th and no, we don’t know how you can watch it, sadly.
