Aleksander Emelianenko made a successful return to MMA defeating Geronimo dos Santos via first-round TKO at WFCA 42 in Moscow.
Emelianenko is the younger brother of one of the greatest heavyweight fighter of all time, Fedor Emelianenko returns were sent to Russian prison back in 2015, initially for 4.5 years, after he was convicted of sexual assault, “kidnapping” by withholding a passport, and the forced use of “narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances” of his housekeeper, Polina Stepanova.
He pleaded not guilty, claiming that any contact with Polina was consensual. She was reportedly harassed by Emelianenko’s friends after filing a police report.
Emelianenko was paroled in the later part of 2016 for his ‘good behavior’ and ordered not to contact his former housekeeper!
