MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Aleks Emelianenko To Return Against… Anyone? Bueller?

(Oh yeah, finding opponents won’t be difficult at all…)

According to a new article by Fighters Only, Aleksander Emelianenko claims that he will be returning for the next Affliction show.  He also mentions that the medical rumors surrounding his ejection from the last Affliction PPV are simply untrue.  That’s right.  Just didn’t happen.  Looks like the CSAC was mistaken(?) when one of their top execs had this to say regarding Fedor’s little:

“The one thing that I can absolutely say is that he (Emelianenko) was not and will not be cleared to fight in California. He is officially denied a license and that will stand for all of the United States of America.”

Hmm. Well that’s not encouraging. Despite the harsh words from the Golden State, Emelianenko remains optimistic.

“I am going back to the States next week to do interviews and make some film for the January event,” he said.

“But I don’t know about any opponent yet, all that is in the process of being sorted out.”

Aleks added that he may also “fight around Christmas-time in Japan.”

“But there will be no problem this time – everything is cool.”

And by cool, he means it’ll be a piece of cake to find a top level fighter who is willing to fight a potential case of Hepatitis B. This can’t bode well for Affliction, as Fedor has made a history of mandating that his brother be included in all shows he does.

I’d love a rematch of Barnett and Aleks. It’d seem like sparks would fly…to say the least

According to this article

It wasn't anything medical.

Hey Rob Enderle guilty dog barks first...or in your case guilty dog sucks cock first.
I am surprised Ben hasn't ask you for a breathe test, cause anyone who would write that shit, MUST suck cock.....seems a forgone conclusion to me.

As for Fedor, I am surprised he doesn't have aids, hes so FUCKING stupid!

I don't think it's the past criminal convictions. Why would they wait until the weigh in if it was something like this?

I also believe that at the weigh in they said it was a medical issue, I'm not sure of that though.

I really don't think it's the crime thing, I could see that giving him visa trouble, but I'm not sure why that would stop him from getting a license to fight.

Sucks ballz if he can't fight here. Sometimes I really feel like him and his brother should have better American representation. It kinda just seems like these Russian "yokels", who live in the snow, just surface, fight then disappear back to their tundra. Just sayin.

I remember reading a while back that a dude claiming to be intimately familiar with the inner workings of the CSAC said that he would not be given a license because of his felony convictions and ties to organized crime, i read this BEFORE he was rejected, which leads me to believe it's true.

Has anyone else seen the latest Fedor interview where he also states that the reason AE couldn't fight in Cali during affliction one was due to a medical issue.....that kinda says it all really, no reason his own brother would not tell the truth. I read it on Sherdog, don't recall what site, if I recall correctly it was a russian paper or something, the guy translated it and posted it. I'll see if I can look it up.

This could have made a nice headline for people who like MMA not just the Perez Hilton/TUF crowd:

29/09/08 - Exclusive: Aleksander calling for Barnett rematch at Affliction

Aleksander Emelianenko is calling for Josh Barnett to be his opponent when he fights for Affliction in January.

Asked by Fighters Only editor-in-chief Ian ‘The Machine’ Freeman who he wanted to fight next, the Russian heavyweight said: “There is only one choice... Josh Barnett.”
Sodak- September 28, 2008 at 7:33 pm
Sweet, he should fight the loser of big country and arlovski, i don't think he has the hep if he does he'd be a pathological liar why would he be making up all this stuff about fighting. where does all this talk of hep B come from? hope he gets a fight Its hard for felons to find work.
Rob Enderle- September 28, 2008 at 7:32 pm
Has anyone any proof of his Hep?
Any?

Seems like if he does fight in California we can stop the rumour mongering/
We'll then promise to not make any references to Ben's obvious love of cock.
I havent seen Ben suck any cock mind you but when you see him and hear him speak
and get all excited at two sweatly bodies interlaced, well he potentially could be a cocksucker.
No proof is needed.

Actually, japanese medical rules are pretty strict when it comes to anything transmittable so maybe we'll know then.

As for Hep, it aint so bad. Pamela Anderson still gets laid tons and hep is the least of her problems. Paris Hilton has herpes yet idiot athletes like that NHL goalie whose rich wife left him because of Herpes Hilton still think their invincible.

Just make sure there are no elbows allowed.
