Apparently Aleksander Emelianenko is still slated to fight Cro Cop despite being detained for his cafe brawl

Has anyone noticed that Aleksander is gradually falling into the realm of Datsik with every bizarre story we hear out of Russia involving him and prostitutes and/or brawls? Granted, the last time we talked about Datsik on MiddleEasy, the dude wanted Aleksander Emelianenko’s address to hunt him down — something that Aleksander wasn’t really concerned about in this Russian interview. Keep in mind this happened shortly after Datsik escaped a mental institution by ripping open a gate with his bare hands only to be stopped at the border when he tried to immigrate to Norway. He even nonchalantly handed over a loaded gun to police. We had it all on video but since we published it, the clip has been removed from the internet. It just goes to show you that we should develop a habit of backing up every morsel of bizarreness we find on the interwebs.

According to, it appears Aleksander Emelianenko has been detained by the police for the cafe brawl we reported yesterday on MiddleEasy. More details have been revealed and Aleksander allegedly beat up a 63-year-old man named Vasiliy Mysyutin after a heated argument in a Moscow cafe. Aleksander was also slated to face Mirko Cro Cop in the main event of Легенда (Legends 2) in November and according to the promoter the fight is still on.

I’m sure there’s a ‘Aleksander Emelianenko can beat up two old men’ joke in there somewhere, but I’m entirely too compassionate to make it. Props to TDM for the +100 news tip.
