Finally, the snowman decided to take revenge on Alexander.
Alexander Emelianenko has just had his duel with Evgeny Ershov. Phoenix ultimately won, which made the fans incredibly happy. And a whole queue is already forming on the list of future rivals. The desire to fight Alexander was announced by Jeff Monson. For a long time he had hoped to have a rematch with Emelianenko. And now he has fully stated that he intends to end his professional career with such a fight.
The 52-year-old fighter in an interview with Sport Express told all the details of the upcoming event. And, judging by the confidence of Monson, this revenge can no longer be avoided: “Yes, we will fight with Emelianenko preliminarily at the end of August in Ufa. The exact date will be determined within two weeks. This will be my last fight. After Emelianenko, I will stop fighting and go into politics.”
Revenge, which is almost inevitable:
Alexander Emelianenko and Jeff Monson expect one more fight: the trilogy will close
Russian promoter Vladimir Khryunov also confirmed the information about the upcoming fight in an interview with the Championship: “There are contacts about the fight between Monson and Sasha Emelianenko. Jeff is an honest man who deserved this fight. The work is in progress. The preliminary date is the end of August. I asked Jeff to help make this a great regional event, to give him the biggest arena Ufa has. Let everyone come see it.”
In addition, Vladimir also spoke about the rules by which the third fight in this story will take place: “They will fight according to the rules of MMA. With Evgeny Ershov, there was also a ground floor. Zhenya himself flew there, not having enough fighting skills. He held out his arms and Sasha caught him. Three-minute rounds are being discussed for the fight with Monson.”
We remember Emelianenko’s victory over Yershov:
Emelianenko defeated the blogger! Sasha could barely walk, but she twisted Yershov’s arm
The duel between Monson and Emelianenko could be a beautiful conclusion to this story. The confrontation has been going on since 2012, when the first duel took place. Jeff then turned out to be stronger and finished Phoenix off ahead of schedule, suffocating in the second round. After 10 years, the rivals were still able to arrange a rematch. It took place on the Hardcore FC site with bare fists. And then the judges left the victory to Alexander. Now is the time to close this trilogy!
It’s also very curious that Jeff was going to leave the sport and go into politics. He will definitely do it in Russia, because the fighter refused the American passport. And Khryunov is sure that this initiative of Monson’s can only be perceived positively: “Unlike many politicians, he takes concrete steps that show that he loves his new homeland. I was once with him at a conference at Saransk University, where teaching is carried out in English. He was asked: “Why are left movements not represented in Russia?” He explained to the children for a long time that they must be real, then they will not need movements to the left or to the right. And within the framework of this present, do real facts and actions. You have to treat it that way.”
Monson refused a US passport. And here are the details:
“America causes suffering.” Monzón is so Russian that he refused his US passport!
The fight between Monson and Emelianenko is the perfect story for everyone. Jeff is not a powerful drummer, so Alexander can benefit from this. And in the fight, Phoenix has a good chance, which he confirmed in the fight with Ershov.
