Alexander Emelianenko is really a professional athlete. Most likely, a couple of years ago, he would have broken me in half with my eyes closed. But that was a couple of years ago. Now 10% of his former sports form remains. Not the speed, not the reaction. I'm actually out fighting the walking dead. And I will do everything so that our fight will be the last for him.
