Alexander Emelianenko retires
one of the great stories of unreached potential. i wonder how badly fedor beat him up after jeff monson choked the hepatitis out of aleks last month
A sad story.
Back in the day he had the potential to become one of the best fighters in the HW division.
His boxing was absolutely awesome, I think that in his prime, it was probably as good as JDS's. His ground game was never his strong point, but he was a Sambo champion so he already knew some stuff there. If he moved to train wrestling or BJJ with a serious camp, he could have been a beast.
But in 2008 all his problems began. The rumours about the Hepatitis. His constant claims that he was not ill and that very soon we would watch him fighting Top guys in Top Orgs, instead, he was fighting 1 time per year against some can (and he lost to some of those cans btw).
It is not a secret that his relationship with Fedor is not good.
It is a shame. He had a huge huge huge potential, but at the end it was all a fail.
I am not sure how good of an example he is for young people.
It is incredible how different are both Fedor and Aleks.
Well, so this is the end of the Emelianenkos.
What could have been...what could have been...
So there are no longer any Emelianenkos fighting in MMA. At all, anywhere.
Merry Fuckin Christmas.
Good bad or Ugly his past was it still was a honorable way to how he retired. He didn't dwell on anything but good, and made no artifical cliams
According to some posters in other forums who speak Russian, there is more to this story.
Take it with a grain of salt, but this is what someone else wrote:
"In case you want to know... Several days ago he was drunk as hell during his mma seminar (there were around 30 guys there, and of course they paid money for that), he didnt show them anything useful, it was hard just to understand what he was talking.
He spat at some dude at the airport and was behaving like a total jackass. Alexander was always like that. Yes, sometimes he gets drunk and does some stupid things like that. But this was to much even for M-1 and they fired him. The next day he retired.
Sorry if my english was bad
P.S.Alexander was telling that he would go to the UFC and defeat all their fighters in some of his interviews. And he always says, that he is in the top 10 of the best fighters in the world. And you know what? Some people in Russia really believe in that (of course they are not some real mma fans, they all laugh and joke about that)"
you think fedor fired him? that's be like a repeat of the combat sambo championships from two years ago..
