Surrounded by an aura of danger and mystery, Aleksander Emelianenko is one of the scariest men on the planet. The younger brother of consensus number one heavyweight in the world Fedor Emelianenko, Aleks has forged his own path to stardom.

Although still unknown to many of today’s Ultimate Fighter raised MMA fans in the U.S., Aleks has made it clear that will one day change. At only 27 years of age, the Saint-Petersburg born heavyweight plans on fighting for many years to come.

I think Aleks would make a great addition to the HW division, but I wonder if his record will allow him to without going through miles of red tape

would be a solid addition to the UFC HW stable. I think he can take out some big names and would love to see him square off against Lesnar and Cain!!!

If Dana can't sign the top heavyweight in the world he might as well go after his younger brother.

Aleks is my favorite HW, and I want nothing more than to see him in the UFC. At this point though, I think the chances are minimal. It was just last July that an CSAC official said that Aleks would never fight in the U.S. again.

Hopefully there is some kind of inaccuracy to the CSAC officials statement.

I think if Alexs could fight in the States he'd already be in UFC. I'd love to see it but I doubt it. I'm surprised he can even get fights anymore.

on the bright side, the CSAC seems to be doing some house cleaning lately due to complete incompetence so maybe aleks could end up in the states.

Even if Aleks isnt allowed to fight in america UFC is going global, have him fight on the canadian, english, irish, or german cards he will be a big draw in europe

Next euro card could be headlined by
Cro Cop vs Aleks
