(Gentlemen, gentlemen, I’m just here for the aspic.)
Chalk up another win for anarchists everywhere. According to a Russian website, former UFC heavyweight title contender and renowned political actvist Jeff Monson was in a subway station just hours before his fight with Fedor Emelianenko when he witnessed two Moscow police officers aggressively badgering a poor, drunken homeless man, likely wearing a shawl and holding a baby, and decided to intervene. We’ll let “RT” explain how things went down:
One of the LifeJournal users was shocked when he met Monson in the city’s Metro, which he decided to take in order to make the 40-minute trip to the Moscow outskirts, where he was to hold a master class the day before the fight. He was dressed in hooded top and wearing flip-flops. The temperature on that day was around zero degrees.
On one of the stations he noticed two policemen trying to calm down a drunken man. Their methods seemed too aggressive to the American and he rushed to calm down the policemen. Monson’s escort decided not to wait until the American, known for his penchant for anarchism, beat up the surprised law-enforcers and stopped the scuffle.
Now, we can only assume that this story was fabricated by the Russians to cover up the real story – Monson caught them spying on his training regimen, as they’ve been known to do, and decided to lay a good old fashioned American ass-whooping on those commie bastards. It’s no wonder he looked so worn out in his unanimous decision loss to Fedor that night, the man had already used up all of his best combinations saving one of the 99 percent. But if you think about it, Monson went 2-1 on the evening, whereas Mother Russia only went 1-2. What we’re trying to say is…AMERICA!! FUCK YEAH!
On a side note, flip flops?! In zero degree weather?! Really Jeff? And here we thought his “Snowman” nickname came from his short, stocky physique.
