Alexander Emelianenko Calls it Quits

Alexander Emelianenko, the younger brother of former heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko, has announced his retirement from MMA. Emelianenko is 31 years old, but was recently released from his contract with M-1 Global due to a breach.

Emelianenko made the announcement on his Facebook page. He started his fighting career in 2003 and amassed a record of 21-6.

In his last bout, Emelianenko was defeated by Jeff Monson in November via submission. The defeat snapped a four-fight win streak for the Russian.

Fedor Emelianenko retired from MMA earlier this year, as well, following a victory over Pedro Rizzo.
