Emelianenko made a name for himself at the beginning of his combat sports career in Pride, facing the likes of Josh Barnett and Fabricio Werdum. He has accumulated a 28-9 professional MMA record during his career.

Russian authorities charged Emelianenko with kidnapping and rape in 2014 after an incident involving his housekeeper. He also fled from police but served just 18 months of a 54-month sentence.

As for Datsik, he won his MMA debut against former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in 1999 before trading wins and losses in his MMA career.

Emelianenko’s most-recent loss could spell the end of his career in combat sports, though his fighting future remains uncertain.
