It wasn't MMA, but Blagoi Ivanov scored plenty of bleeding ink last fall when he defeated Fedor Emelianenko in a Combat Sambo competition. According to Nightmare of Battle, Ivanov will now face Fedor's brother, Aleksander, in a Korean mixed martial arts contest on Sept. 29.

Pretty easy story to follow, though Ivanov is jumping into the deep end of the pool fairly quickly.

If he wins -- which would be a feat considering Aleksander's experience -- a rematch with Fedor seems inevitable.

The whole Aleks situation confuses the hell out of me.

Does he have hepatitus or not ?

Can he fight in the US or not ?

Anybody.....?

I wish I could answer that.
The last fight I saw with him they stopped very fast though over a little cut.
Makes me wonder.

He's obviously got Hep, and he's obviously lying about it. Otherwise he'd be fighting in the US, not some 2 bit show in Korea.
