Emelianenko smashed the promoters

The legendary Russian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Fedor Emelianenko is furious that promoters continue to arrange fights for his brother Alexander, who suffers from alcoholism. The famous athlete demanded that a criminal case be opened against the organisers of the fights.

Emelianenko said this in an interview with Sport24. He called the situation with alcohol consumption in Russia a madhouse, where many people even allow themselves to go to work drunk.

"I think it should be banned in a strict form. Who will do this - the prosecutor's office together with the Ministry of Sport, the Ministry of Sport together with the federations and the prosecutor's office... It should be banned. Just the fact that Oleksandr is going to fight in this state... It's a criminal offence to allow a person to come to a fight in this state. For some reason, we have breathalysers when people go to work. And artists allow themselves to go out drunk, under the influence of drugs. And athletes, too. It's crazy. It shouldn't be like this," said Emelianenko Sr.


It should be noted that in early April, Oleksandr Emelianenko staged a drunken brawl at the Yekaterinburg airport when he threatened police officers. Last week, the fighter won a fight against blogger Yevgeny Ershov, which was called a staged fight.


As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Oleksandr Emelianenko flew to Dubai, where he scattered earth from his pockets on the beach. The athlete posted a video on his social media showing a strange ritual.
