Fedor Emelianenko's participation in Combat Sambo ignores a 90-day medical suspension issued by the New Jersey Athletic Control Board for head strikes following the loss to Antonio Silva. ...The state regulatory agency also prohibited Emelianenko from fighting pending a CT scan of his head and facial bones.

Representatives for Emelianenko did not respond to questions about the heavyweight's decision to compete despite athletic commission medical suspensions.

Props to Fedor for wanting to enter another combat competition. But, is it safe to ignore the NJACB on health and legal levels? The article did say that there's a chance for potential consequences. Is he just not worried?

He's Russian and he's made the most of his career in Japan, where he will be forever loved. What does he have to fear....going back to F.E.G. and quickly taking the Dream belt, being suspended from fighting in a country that has been more of a pain than a success.....If you were Fedor, you'd do whatever you wanted too!!

I dont think so. I dont like him, but hes a cocky S.O.B. Sambo is less demanding then MMA but hopefully he'll do just fine. It is definitely not safe to ignore their recommendations on him taking a break. It's not like SF is going to cut him if he competes either.
