Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Internet Beef of the Day: Sergei Kharitonov and Aleksander Emelianenko

When Russians fight, they don’t beat around the bush.

In an interview he did over the weekend with in which he responded to claims from Aleksander Emelianenko that his brother’s loss to Dan Henderson over the weekend was the fault of Fedor’s trainers, Sergei Kharitonov called Lil’ Emel “a drunken, diseased drug addict who wasn’t raised properly and who was a mistake.”

“When I read his interview I laughed out loud. Although he is 30 years old and that’s certainly not the reason for laughter. Firstly, for guys like Aleks I am not ‘Serezha’ but rather ‘Sergei Valeryevich.’ Secondly, it’s about time for him to learn how to compress thoughts and, above all, to think before he speaks. He didn’t get a proper upbringing, I guess, but I don’t want to go deeper in it – he doesn’t deserve so much honor. He is a great trash-talker, but real fighters prove their strength in the ring. Aleks is a drinker, he is always brawling. Normal men like me or Fedor would never drink to alcoholic mania and fight in the street. But I often hear about Aleks getting into scraps like this in different corners of our country,” he says. “He rampages, harasses the waitresses and other girls, lies, cries on every corner that he is a champion of the world and the strongest man on Earth. I guess, this is some kind of a drug effect.”

Kharitonov moved over from Russian Top Team to train with Fedor’s Red Devil Sports Team and according to the 30-year-old Russian, who has since moved on to Team Golden Glory in Holland, the reason he’s no longer with RDST is Aleks.

“He came to our gym about a month after he was released from jail and Fedor asked me not to punch Aleks too strong. And after it Aleks said in his interview that he had taught me how to punch. What can a criminal teach you in a month after prison? It’s just not comfortable for Fedor to turn his brother down. The only way Aleks can knock somebody out now is the smell of alcohol from his mouth,” he spewed. “I don’t think it was a good idea to take Aleks to the camp. His comment that he was, ‘hanging out in Kislovodsk for three weeks,’ means that he distracted Fedor from training for those three weeks. And he always says, ‘WE’ in his interviews. Who are those, ‘we?’ Fedor will get a lot of respect regardless of number of his losses. He is a respectful athlete and worthy person. Concerning Aleks, I can say that he is the reason why our relations with Fedor deteriorated. We’ve drifted apart. It would be a great pleasure for me to come to Kislovodsk and train with Fedor, but Aleksander’s presence there makes it impossible.”

As far as Aleks’ claims that his positive Hepatitis C test was a mistake, Kharitonov said it’s a known fact that the test was legit.

“All organizations in the world know about his hepatitis C and nobody wants to have business with him. He has drunk himself into this disease. He is drug addicted alcoholic and criminal. All his disrespectful remarks to the athletes are just a bullshit,” Kharitonov says. “How can he fight with hepatitis? Nobody’s gonna take him to any tournament. He lies that he hasn’t been to prison but it’s not true. He has.”

Sergei says that it’s sad that Aleks has never learned from his past mistakes and that at 30-years-of age, he doesn’t have a pot to piss in.

“I know some people that have been to prison, they reformed, realized their mistakes and improved. Aleks hasn’t changed at all. He stayed the same. There were some cases when he could get to jail but Fedor stepped in again. There were also some cases when Fedor literally saved his life. Being honest, prison is the best place for Aleks. Fedor made a great push to take him out of a jail as early as possible. I remember 2002 when Fedor said ,’I’d like Aleks to get out of jail somewhat quicker.’ Fedor is the reason why Aleksander is free now. Actually, he owes his brother everything he has at the present moment,” Sergei says. “Fedor carries him on his shoulders. Fedor gave him an opportunity to step in the ring to make some money. He used to make good money because of his last name, but he could not keep it. He swapped everything for drink and parties. I know that for the present moment Aleks doesn’t have neither house nor home. He has spend everything on drink. He doesn’t have a flat, doesn’t have a car, and the only way to make some money for him is to give a scandalous interview and to attract some attention to his person. He is ready for everything to get the bout. He even came to Fedor’s camp with the hope that Fedor would help him to organize a fight somewhere. But he is washed-up.”

He also says that the interview about his brother that he gave over the weekend to a Russian news site was likely just done for a quick buck and that he likely was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he did the interview.

“He is likely to give that interview being drunk and drugged-out. You can see it by his voice in his interview about Fedor’s trainers that he was inadequate. He’s gonna be 30 in two days,” he points out. “This mistake was born on August 2 — the day of airborne troops — my holiday. And he is still living from one drunken feast to another — from one scuffle to another. He must be missing jail.”

The younger Emelianenko responded today to Kharitonov’s harsh criticisms.

Here’s what he told

“Kharitonov lied. Everything he says in his interview is stupid nonsense. Maybe he over partied at gay parades in Amsterdam and lost his head. Lets start from the Hep C. I’m offering Kharitonov next — I’m ready to take the blood test for Hep C in front of any media and Internet resources,” Emelianenko offers. “If the results are negative, he should cut off his own finger. If the results will turn out positive, I will cut off my own finger. Thats for the whole world to know who is the fuck face. Thats what I’m offering to him concerning his claims. If he refuses this bet then the world will know who’s lying anyway. What else does he need? A clown hat. He screams everywhere that he’s a paratrooper. But in truth he’s just an army office rat, who has never seen any action. When he came to fight the whole paratrooper image including the right song was my idea. If he’s a real paratrooper he should act as one.”

Remind me never to make a bet with a Russian.

I see Aleks in his Pride days being a dangerous man in the UFC heavyweight division. His size and quick hands could make for some good fights. I'm not saying he'd be a number one contender, but he would be an interesting matchup for a number of competitors in the division.

Anyone else notice the tattoos on Alek's shoulders and knees? Russian mob style, son.

Your godamn sockets need to spend some time with jennas legs so they can LEARN HOW TO OPEN

I think aleks' bet just confirms what dude was saying.. that sounds like a pretty low life response to me.
I agree, the problems with cp are irritating, and the fact that they aren't acknowledged at all is even more irritating. I miss the good ol days.. Good writing, funny articles, no captcha, no spammers, AND we had a godamn edit button... Those were the days! That miesha tate close up shot of her big ass in a thong almost makes up for everythig theyve ever done wrong though.. That brought me great happiness. That ass is hediculous.

I am reserving my comments on this story so I don't wind up in someone's borscht.

I love Sergei's response to the stoppage in that video, "Don't you get it, ref? I was lulling him into a false sense of security allowing him to knee me in the face. He looked kind of tired before I let him drop me and I thought he would wear himself out punching me in the face."

OMFG! The new layout used to just be "meh" and I could look past it...but I just tried to look-up an old article to show a friend and it took me WELL over twice the time it should. Now I am starting to HATE the new layout, and will be searching for a new MMA site until this gets settled. I thought we had a good give/take relationship CP, but having to specifically seek out an adblocker, and now with the new layout...I dont think its going to work out.

All it will cost is a finger. That seems such a small price for truth.
