Aleksander Emelianenko is the brother of P4P king Fedor Emelianenko and also a Pride heavyweight veteran. If I remember correctly he suffers some form of hepatatis as a result of prison tattoos while affiliated with gangs. Aleks was in prison for rape, if I remember correctly once again..

He most recently lost to K1 veteran Peter Graham via TKO due to leg kicks. He was next set to fight Rafal Dabrowski but the fight was cancelled days before for unspecified reasons.

Emelianenko next faced relative unknown Magomed Malikov in his brother's M-1 promotion, losing via shockingly quick first round knockout.

Emelianenko next faced Tolegen Akylbekov in Akylbekov's native Kazakhstan, defeating Tolegen via first round kimura submission for his first victory of 2011, in December...

Emelianenko next returned to M-1 in March 2012, facing Tadas Rimkevicius. He defeated Rimkevicius via second-round technical knockout. Aleks next faced Ibragim Magomedov, winning via doctor stoppage between the second and third rounds. He then faced Konstantin Gluhov, winning via unanimous decision.

Emelianenko then faced Jeff Monson, losing via second round north-south choke submission. Emelianenko was then cut from M-1 and retired afterwards.

Emelianenko came out of retirement four or five months later to fight Bob Sapp winning by technical knockout in a little over one minute. He then faced Jose Rodrigo Guelke winning by technical knockout near the end of the first round.

Emelianenko was then set to fight a rematch against rival Mirko Filipovic but he was arrested for assault before the fight and was replaced by Alexey Oleinik.

After his issues were sorted out Emelianenko signed to fight Bellator veteran Eric Prindle.
